La Sapienza tells the story of Alexandre (Fabrizio Rongione), a Swiss architect who seeks spiritual and artistic renewal during a voyage to Italy to study the work of 17th-century architect Francesco Borromini. His wife, Aliénor (Christelle Prot Landman), who is also unhappy with their relationship, decides to tag along.
On their way to Rome, the couple meets two siblings: Goffredo (Ludovico Succio), an architecture student in search of a mentor, and Lavinia (Arianna Nastro), a young girl struggling with her imminent separation from her brother.
Their encounter prompts Aliénor to stay with Lavinia in order to help her deal with her brother’s departure. Aliénor also asks Alexandre to take Goffredo on his trip to Rome, to see one of the most extraordinary projects completed by Francesco Borromini: the Church of St. Yves of La Sapienza.
