Film Three: The Leopard (1963) by Luchino Visconti

One of the greatest epics ever filmed, Luchino Visconti’s The Leopard is a masterpiece for not only the scale of it ambition but its touches of emotion that are displayed to contrast with the history of Sicily. 232 more words


Film Two: Divorce Italian Style (1961) by Pietro Germi

I can honestly say I was surprised I how hilarious the movie actually was. Marcello Mastroianni stars as Ferdianando Cefalu, a Sicilian nobleman who plans to kill his wife(Daniela Rocca) in order to marry his much younger cousin Angela(Stefania Sandrelli). 106 more words
