Il gattopardo = The leopard by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

55 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,363 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
Rocco e i suoi fratelli by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

47 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 510 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
