Il gattopardo = The leopard by Luchino Visconti( visu )
48 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,137 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

Senso by Luchino Visconti( visu )
47 editions published between 1953 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 536 libraries worldwide
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( visu )
62 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 519 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
Le notti bianche = White nights by Luchino Visconti( visu )
18 editions published between 1957 and 2014 in Italian and English and held by 495 libraries worldwide
A chance encounter on a canal bridge results in a series of twilight rendezvous between a lonely man and a sheltered woman haunted by a lover's promise
Il mio viaggio in Italia = My voyage to Italy by Ma ding shi ke xi si( visu )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 437 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

When Toto fails as lookout, Cosimo is caught attempting to steal a car. In the big house, Cosimo's cellmate tells him about a fabulous Bellini, so now he needs a Mullinski. Cosimo asks his girlfriend Rosalind for help, and she looks for assistance from Toto, who calls on Basil, who draws in Leon, who seeks counsel from Riley, who selects the perfect Mullinski--Pero, who promptly reneges and then calls upon the burglary talents of once great safecracker Jerzy. The job itself is foolproof, so how do these bungling small-timers pull off the greatest heist of their careers without killing each other?
