Because he believes that his beloved Isabella is in love with Captain Cardone, in utter jealousy Lucio announces to jump in the abyss.
Scene 2
Cardone quarrels with Zane, because after many hints he won't understand him, but he rather confuses him so that his answers are strange. Nevertheless eventually he knocks on Isabella's door.
Scene 3
Isabella pretends to be in love with the Spanish Captain, so that when she dies she would more hurt his insatiable desires .

From a distance the faithful lovers meet rejoicing in their presence, pledging to be true till death.

Everybody is now content and happy. Isabella and Lucio are wed and a great exchange of valuable gifts is displayed.
