Composer Gustav von Aschenbach takes a convalescent holiday at the Venice Lido after the death of his child and the disastrous reception of his new compositions. Bored, he indulges an idle, whimsical, faintly epicurean interest in a beautiful boy sporting on the beach.

The onset of a deadly pestilence resolves his infatuation, as corruption eventually compromises all ideals

Rocco e i suoi fratelli by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

26 editions published between 1960 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luchino Visconti's operatic masterpiece tells the story of the Parondis, a poor family from a village in southern Italy who come to Milan seeking a better life. Following the death of her husband, proud Rosaria (Katina Paxinou) picks up stakes and moves to the city with four of her sons: Simone (Renato Salvatori), Rocco (Alain Delon), Ciro (Max Cartier), and Luca (Rocco Vidolazzi). Awaiting them in Milan is her oldest son, Vincenzo (Spiros Focas), who himself is preoccupied with his impending nuptials to the beautiful Ginetta (Claudia Cardinale). Divided into chapters focused loosely on each brother, the movie chronicles the Parondis' struggle to get by, as the brothers take odd jobs and the family endures life in a cramped tenement. Much of the movie's second half deals largely with Simone and Rocco. The loutish Simone eventually finds success as a boxer, and the family soon moves to a better neighborhood. Meanwhile, Rocco gets drafted by the military, and becomes a successful boxer himself upon his return. Complications arise when Nadia (Annie Girardot), a prostitute, enters their lives. Simone falls in love with Nadia first; however, Rocco eventually becomes the object of her affection. Simone's obsession with Nadia and his rapidly deteriorating behavior ultimately threaten to bring the family to ruin, even as the saintly Rocco tries to save his brother. At the peak of Rocco's success, Simone commits a crime that cruelly dashes Rocco's hopes of keeping the family together

111 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rocco chronicles the tensions within a southern family - a mother and her five sons - who have moved to a northern Italian city. The drama unfolds in a series of episodes merging into each other in which each of the five sons moves in turn to occupy the centre of the stage. Nowell-Smith suggests that each brother, in a sense, represents a certain kind of solution to the problems faced by a southern immigrant family in this historical moment (the 1950s in Milan) yet they are not typical
