There’s message from Lupin the Third, but this time, he’s not announcing a heist. Instead, it’s an invitation to his wedding with the young and famous tabloid queen, Rebecca of the wealthy Rosselini conglomerate. Lupin’s true motive behind his nuptials is to steal the Libertas crown, also known as San Marino’s national treasure. The crown is only brought out during their marriage ceremony. But as Lupin attempts to steal the crown, his arch-nemesis Inspector Zenigata is ready to pounce, having been tipped off on Lupin’s attempted heist. But who tipped him off, and why?
Meanwhile in Rome, a skilled spy from the English secret service, MI-6 finally manages to corner Lupin. During these proceedings, it’s revealed that MI-6 has been secretly investigating something known as the Dream of Italy, which is somehow related to a tragic hidden love affair from Rebecca’s past. The story that began in San Marino expand all over Italy as Lupin pursues love and freedom in this exciting new adventure.
