As the brll liant radiance of the gems finds its reflection in Rosa's midnight eyes, a gangster who is bitterly jealous of ! Pietro, whispers to the luxuriantly ibeautiful young girl. "My love for you consumes me like .living fire. For you I would even I steal the sacred jewels from tiw Ma donna's consecrated breast." She whispers back: j "To such a man and such a man ° nly * w ? uld 1 rive myself. Yes, down - to my inmost soul.
