      In primo piano è la moglie Julka, la più bella tra le figlie di Apollon Schucht, la jeune fille dall'ovale perfetto e dallo sguardo bizantino che Gramsci conosce per caso nel 1922, in Russia, nel sanatorio della Foresta d'argento: là era ricoverata anche Genia, la sorella maggiore invaghita del rivoluzionario sardo che mai avrebbe perdonato a entrambi la fuga sentimentale.
      In the foreground is the wife Julka, the most beautiful of Apollon Schucht's daughters, the maiden with a perfect oval face and a byzantine gaze that Gramsci met by chance in 1922, in Russia, in the sanatorium of the Silver Forest: there Genia, the elder sister in love with the Sardinian revolutionary who would never have forgiven either of them for their sentimental escape, was also hospitalized.
