THE NAMES

Hubbard Street Lofts, 3rd fl
1821 W Hubbard St.
Chicago, IL  

Martina Visconti, a Jewish opera star, decides to remain in German-occupied Milan during World War II, in hopes of protecting her impetuous younger sister, Giulia, who has joined the Resistance. Meanwhile, an American GI in an embattled infantry unit south of Rome dreams of reaching Milan so that he can finally meet his operatic idol. 

Names are everywhere during the years of occupation— the aliases common to times of war, the names which populate the Periodic Table of the Elements, the names of friends and lovers inked onto bare skin
