Following a bitter duel with Rodomonte, king of Algiers, Rinaldo manages to put the invaders to flight and, having entered the wood of the leaf, meets Orlando with the beautiful Angelica. The two paladins challenge each other to a duel, they would surely have killed each other if the magician Malagigi had not intervened to divide them (…)
