Five stories of Ferrara by Giorgio Bassani( Book )

5 editions published between 1960 and 1971 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main theme of Giorgio Bassani's novels and short stories, which have earned him wide acclaim outside Italy, has been the advent of anti-Semitism in the provincial Italian city of Ferrara during World War II. Earlier he had a successful career as an editor with a major publishing house, being credited with helping to bring to public notice The Leopard by Tomasi Lampedusa. Bassani edited a literary magazine and was director of the Italian radio-television network. His first collection of short pieces was A City on the Plain, written under the pseudonym Giacomo Marchi. His volumes of poems were finally collected and published in 1963. The stories and novels that were to make him famous abroad began to appear in the 1950s. They include A Prospect of Ferrara (1960), and The Gold Rimmed Spectacles (1960). A film version of The Garden of the Finzi-Continis (1962) by Vittorio De Sica has become a public television classic

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

La rabbia : un film in due parti = The anger : a film in two parts( Visual )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in Italian and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La rabbia attempts to show how the right wing and the left wing viewed the societal changes in the 1950s and 60s. Pier Paolo Pasolini and Giovannino Guareschi explore topics such as racism, the Middle East, Cuba, Stalinism, the Atomic bomb, and the death of Marilyn Monroe from diametrically opposite sides of the political spectrum, so it is no wonder why the U.S. government was afraid of this film. Pasolini and Guareschi, two of the most important opinion makers and intellectuals in post-WWII Europe, employ documentary footage from this era and an accompanying commentary, in which they attempt to answer, Pasolini quite elegantly and poetically and Guareschi quite negatively and outrageously, the existential question: why are our lives characterized by discontent, anguish, and fear? The film is in two completely separate parts, and the directors of these respective sections, left-wing film director and poet, Pier Paolo Pasolini, and the conservative journalist and film director, Giovanni Guareschi, offer the viewer two extremely polar views of, and prescriptions for modern society. This publication is an exclusive, uncut, restored version obtained from the Cinemateque of Bologna
