The failure of the opera was attributed to the plot that was considered old-fashioned and complex. The action takes place in Paris at the inn of Filippo. Alberto, a young, wealthy man who is searching for a wife, reads an advertisement in the Gazette in which Don Pomponio has placed an ad offering his daughter in marriage to a worthy suitor. Pomponio arrives at the inn and is teased by the crowd for his pretentiousness.
