Locandina-il-gattopardo

A Sicilian aristocrat, skeptical about progress, accepts annexation into the new liberal Kingdom of unified Italy, so that things “remain the same”. Set in 1860 Palermo and vicinities. Based on Giuseppe di Lampedusa’s novel. Golden Palm at the Cannes Festival 1963. Arguably, this movie is for Italy what “Gone with the Wind” is for the US.

ITA 1963, 185 mins
