Il gattopardo = The leopard by Luchino Visconti( visu )
273 editions published between 1962 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 1,857 libraries worldwide
Luchino Visconti's The Leopard (Il Gattopardo) is an epic on the grandest possible scale. The film recreates, with nostalgia, drama, and opulence, the tumultuous years of Italy's Risorgimento-when the aristocracy lost its grip and the middle classes rose and formed a unified, democratic Italy. Burt Lancaster stars as the aging prince watching his culture and fortune wane in the face of a new generation, represented by his upstart nephew and his beautiful fiancee
Death in Venice by Benjamin Britten( visu )
219 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in 14 languages and held by 1,555 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
Senso by Luchino Visconti( visu )
134 editions published between 1953 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 859 libraries worldwide

The international cast includes French film star Alida Valli as an Italian countess married to a Venetian nobelman, and English leading man Farley Granger as an Austrian military officer. The two are swept up in the Austrian empire's evacuation of Italy in 1866. Valli and Granger fall in love, but Valli ultimately realizes that the officer in interested only in her wealth and prestige, whereupon she gives him over to a firing squad
Rocco e i suoi fratelli by Luchino Visconti( visu )
205 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 851 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
