L'acquista, coi soldi di sua moglie Jacomina, un altro villano, Menego. Vittima di un astuto imbroglio di Michelon, però, egli perde, in una volta, consorte e vacca. Il nuovo proprietario affida Fiorina alla custodia di sua moglie Betta, che se la lascia portar via da tre sonatori ambulanti. Condotta al mercato, la vacca finisce nella stalla di Sandron, ma non per molto. Tre soldatacci, infatti, la rubano e la rivendono a padron Beolco. Ricco sfondato, costui, cacciata la vecchia amante, se ne procura, per mezzo di un ruffiano, una nuova: Fiorina (ha lo stesso nome della vacca) moglie affamata del povero Ruzante. Un bel giorno, questi torna dalla guerra, più lacero e malridotto di prima: contenta del suo nuovo stato, la moglie non vuol tornare con lui. Ruzante insiste, affronta gli uomini di Beolco, ma ne riceve tante bastonate da decidere che è meglio per lui tornare a far la guerra».

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: cinema.theiapolis.com - IMDb: «The "decamerotici" is not a genre most in the English-speaking world are too familiar with as they were rarely translated into English or released outside of Italy. These ribald period sex comedies were ostensibly based on Bocaccio's famous renaissance collection of often racy morality tales, "The Decameron", but were more directly based on the hit Pasolini movie of the same name (I suspect some of the hack filmmakers of these things had never even read Bocaccio). Many of these films have the word "Decameron" in the title and are even based on specific tales from the book, while others are merely set in the same, pre-Renaissance period and are the same bawdy spirit like "Ubalda, All Naked and Warm" (the only one so far to get a decent English-subtitled release) and this one. This film is told in vignettes like a lot of the more faithful "decamerotici", but like "Ubalda" the vignettes are based on the same group of characters in a single village and loosely tied together by a "vacca" (a cow) called "Fiorina". These period movies are slightly more sophisticated than most Italian sex movies (that is slightly more sophisticated than a loud fart at the dinner table), but I would still maintain that the main (and perhaps only) reason to watch them is the women. You could generally divide the women in 1970's Italian exploitation movie into two broad characters, the "madonnas", voluptuous older women like Rosalba Neri or Mariangela Giordano, and the "lolitas", the not-much-less voluptuous but younger and more nublie actresses like Gloria Guida and Ornella Muti. Most of these films naturally utilized the former (or Edwige Fenech who was in a class by herself), but this one strangely has a lot of the latter. Swedish actress Ewa Aulin has the biggest role. She was most famous as the 17-year-old title character of the racy, big-budget comedy/satire "Candy", who a lot of big-time Hollywood actors and celebrities (Marlon Brando, Richard Burton, Ringo Starr) got a taste of (when they weren't mercilessly chewing all the scenery around her). Here she plays a lonely wife whose loutish husband disguises himself as a Spanish soldier to see if she'll cheat on him for money. Her nice, long nude scene almost keeps you from wondering what a blonde Swede is doing in medieval Italy».
