In Rome, a bishop: Ascanio, is stuck in the elevator of a building with a beautiful woman. The bishop was going to see his mistress, but now he is stuck, and then Ascanio goes having a chat with the woman about sexual matters, expressing all his indignation at the manner in which the Italians of that time approach to sex.
