Magnani plays Serafina Delle Rose, who retreats from the world when her beloved husband dies. But Serefina reawakens to life's joys when she meets Alvaro (Burt Lancaster), a happy-go-lucky truck driver who has the same sunny openness her husband had, even the same occupation. And on his chest is the same symbol of love, The Rose Tattoo
