The Catarella morning call announces to the Commissioner the discovery of the body of a young, disfigured, undocumented face. The butterfly, tattooed under the victim’s scapula, will be the only clue that will lead Montalbano to the “busillisi” resolution … after having clashed with the high and corrupt spheres of the church and local politics.
In this scene Montalbano is invited by Mr. Caceffa entering the church to a short dialogue that will mark a turning point in the investigation. Indoor shots take place in the Church of Santissima Annunziata in Ispica.
The inspector Montalbano and Fazio go to Morabito paint shop which was mysteriously set on fire. The location is Modica-Bruno Palace in via Garibaldi. The tree-lined road and the sunlit façade of the majestic Church belong to the Santissima Annunziata in Ispica.
