Il gattopardo = The leopard by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

118 editions published between 1962 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Sicily in the 1800s, this film depicts Prince Salina, a great landowner, who watches the decrease of the aristocracy's power and influence during the 'Il Risorgimento', the unification of Italy under the royal House of Savoy.

Death in Venice by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

125 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 1,397 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
Ossessione by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

Rocco e i suoi fratelli by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

131 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 737 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
