Captain Giorgio Bachetti, Royal Italian Army, is a fictional character from the novel Fosca (1869) by Iginio Ugo Tarchetti. The novel was adapted into the screenplay Passione d'amore (1981), which in turn was the basis for the American stage play Passion (1994). Bachetti, a decorated veteran of Italy's unification wars of the 1850s-60s, is not very skilled in the arena of love. The novel/play deals with his tragic inability to satisfy the emotional needs of the various women he courts, including Fosca, a disturbed, reclusive bibliophile.
