Elisetta hears that she has a noble suitor and starts to give herself the airs of a countess. Caught up by the matrimonial atmosphere the widowed aunt of the two girls, Fidalma confides her projects for marriage to Elisetta. Things become complicated when Robinson arrives to pay his suit and is immediately taken with Carolina.
