Il narratore ripercorre la lunga vicenda del fratello, Cosimo di Rondò, vissuto nella seconda metà del XVIII secolo a Ombrosa, in Liguria. Cosimo, per sfuggire a una punizione inflittagli dai suoi educatori, decide di salire su un albero per non ridiscendere mai più. Cosimo si costruisce un mondo aereo dove diversi personaggi della cultura e della politica (Napoleone compreso) lo vanno a trovare, testimoniandogli la loro ammirazione. Vive anche una tormentata storia d'amore con la volubile Viola. Cosimo muore vecchio, senza mai discendere in terra: ammalato, in punto di morte, si aggrappa alla fune di una mongolfiera e scompare mentre attraversa, cosiì appeso, il mare.
