Marco - in Search of Mother
A young boy who lives with his family in the harbor city of Genoa, Italy during a depression period in 1881. Marco's father, Pietro Rossi, is a doctor who dedicates his time to treating poor patients, and therefore the family has financial difficulties.
His beloved mother, Anna Rossi, goes to Argentina to work as a maid to earn money for Marco. When the letters from his mother stop coming after an indication that she is sick, Marco fears the worst for his mother's fate, and since his father is too busy working in his clinic and his older brother Tonio was sent off to train as a locomotive driver in Milano, he is the only one free enough to go search for her.
At the end of the series, Marco and his mother return to Genoa, where the family is reunited.
