The wealthy Florentine Buoso Donati has just died of disease. His greedy relatives rush to his house for legacy, only to find that Buoso has bequeathed all his fortune to the monastery. Rinuccio, the nephew of Buoso’s cousin Zita is madly in love with Gianni Schicchi's daughter Lauretta. However, the Donati family does not allow Rinuccio to marry Lauretta because she is unwealthy. Rinuccio asks Gianni for advice and Lauretta pleads with her father singing the aria “O mio babbino caro”. Then Gianni claims Buoso is still alive and disguises himself as the seriously ill Buoso to dictate a new will. He allocates the minor bequests to Buoso’s relatives, but leaves the most valuable assets — the mules, the mill and the house in Florence to “Buoso's devoted friend Gianni Schicchi”. Thus, his daughter Lauretta possesses a large dowry. With the new certification by the notary, Gianni drives away the angry relatives. Lauretta and Rinuccio finally get married.
