One day Iole gives Fiammetta a basket full of flowers to deliver, so she and her friend Rocco set out on the town’s streets. But suddenly they see a strange house with even more beautiful flowers. It’s a witch’s house! Rocco runs away scared but Fiammetta is attracted by something sparkly, magical theater binoculars that show the future. Fiammetta looks into the binoculars and sees herself on the stage with a red rose bouquet, blinded by the lights. She runs home to tell her mother but sees a broken vase on the floor.
