The Shroud, a story in three volumes, takes place over several centuries, in several countries, in very different environments.

While in the street protesters shout "Down with the monarchy", Secondo Pia photographs the "shroud" in the San Giovanni Baptista Cathedral. For the Baron d'Urbino, it is the face of Christ that is revealed. Immediately, in the Chamber of Deputies, Enrico denounces a sleight of monarchists to "sit the throne of the House of Savoy."
