Death in Venice by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

113 editions published between 1971 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 1,318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 boy represents an ideal of perfect physical beauty; his youth and naturalness reproach Aschenbach's vanity and creative sterility. The onset of a deadly pestilence resolves his infatuation, as corruption eventually compromises all ideals

Rocco e i suoi fratelli by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

174 editions published between 1960 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 770 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

In Venice, during the spring of 1866, it is the last month of the Austrian occupation of the Veneto.

Countess Livia Serpieri, unloved by her collaborator-husband but sympathetic to the cause of freedom espoused by her patriotic cousin Roberto, meets Austrian officer Franz Mahler as she begs him to call off a duel with Roberto. She falls in love with young, philandering, and mercenary officer, the country marches to revolution, and her dedication to the cause wilts under her desire and obsession. Mesmerized by him, she betrays not only her husband and cousin, but the revolution, too, with tragic results

Il Gattopardo by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

129 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the 1860s during the years of the Risorgimento - the making of modern Italy - which saw the emergence of the bourqeoisie at the expense of the landed aristocracy. Visconti clearly identified with Don Fabrizio ('the Leopard'), the ageing patriarch of an aristocratic Sicilian family. He is the first to understand the inevitability of the changes. 'If everything is to remain the same, everything must change' is the cynical observation of Don Fabrizio's young nephew, Tancredi, who adjusts to the new order in a manner impossible for Fabrizio. Lampedusa's novel, steeped in lethargy and inertia, was filmed by Visconti in the enervating Sicilian summer. The film culminates in the ball scene which stands as a kind of metaphor for transformiso - the emergence of a new order as reactionary as the old
