Senso by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

In Venice, during the spring of 1866, it is the last month of the Austrian occupation of the Veneto. The Italian government has forged a pact with Prussia, and another war of liberation in the ongoing Risorgimento is imminent. 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

Rocco e i suoi fratelli by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

59 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 490 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
Il mio viaggio in Italia = My voyage to Italy by Ma ding shi ke xi si( Visual )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My Voyage to Italy is a warm and loving look at the power of movies, ideal for fans of Italian cinema and Martin Scorsese. Scorsese brings an infectious enthusiasm to his recollections of watching neorealist and epic Italian films on television, and to his examination of the masters of Italian neorealism: Roberto Rossellini, Vittorio De Sica, Luchino Visconti, Federico Fellini, and Michelangelo Antonioni. While offering a solid postwar timeline, basic information about the intellectual movements that influenced Italian filmmakers, and close readings of key films, the subject of the documentary is less about Italian cinema than Scorsese's passion for Italian cinema, especially the movies that made him fall in love with moviemaking. Viewers seeking a primer on Italian cinema may be disappointed, while those familiar with both Italian cinema and Scorsese's films will find much to enjoy

Il Gattopardo by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

44 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 227 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
