Piazza Grande

Il Gattopardo  (The Leopard)

Italy, France  ·  1963  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  187'  ·  o.v. Italian

Emblematic of Titanus’s policy of blockbuster auteur films, The Leopard, winner of a Golden Palm at the Cannes Festival, marks the zenith of Goffredo Lombardo’s production. This majestic and meticulous panorama of the Italian nineteenth century in Sicily centers on Don Fabrizio, prince of Salina, a highly cultured man who understands that a new world is coming into being, but remains torn between acceptance of the new, unified Italy and nostalgia in the face of the decline of his own world. The sumptuous settings and international cast remain faithful to the bitterness of Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa’s unforgettable novel.

Digitally restored by Cineteca di Bologna, Cineteca Nazionale and Titanus.
