The Duke looks out from his castle, and everything he can see for miles and miles belongs to him. Everything, except one small strong house, with a small garden, two goats and a beehive. They belong to the old woman from Friuli.  The Duke wants that house, but the old woman, she won’t sell. She’s from Friuli, where all the really stubborn people come from.
