On 19 December 1958, Marianna Stabilini is in Egypt with friends and an 8mm camera. She is a woman in her thirties, single. She manages the family farm, near Milan, where rice, maize, wheat and marcite are cultivated and animals are bred. She is passionate about hunting, bee-keeping and horses, is very religious and involved in charitable work, and loves travelling, photography and filming. And here she is, with her friends, Countess Isabella B in an elegant brown dress and floral scarf, and Pino, other tourists, local guides and locals, among camels, sphinxes and pyramids. We also see Marianna who for a moment gives up her 8mm. The woman traveller to exotic places with a camera is a figure that always arouses interest, Marianna is a figure remembered in the family for her personality and original gaze on the world.
