IL GATTOPARDO 1959-2019 Unreleased photos by Nicola Scafidi

Il Gattopardo- il primo ciak ph. Nicola Scafidi

Casa del Cinema presents 50 shots by photographer Nicola Scafidi to relive the majestic and decadent atmosphere of “The Leopard”, the novel by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa and the screen adaptation by Luchino Visconti.

Il Gattopardo 1959–2019 is a fascinating narrative journey that celebrates the historical novel and tells of the locations scouting, the curiosities about the protagonists during the shooting in Palermo, the scenes, the backstage and the preview of the film in Rome.

The images, strictly in black and white, bring back to memory the events of Prince Fabrizio di Salina and his family, who witness the decline of aristocracy and the rise of the new bourgeoisie, after Garibaldi's landing in Sicily in 1860.

Visconti's film is a detailed historical portrait of a world trying to freeze its status, but "everything must change so that everything can stay the same"; the inevitable changes are confirmed by a magnificent ball one of the greatest sequences in cinematic history.

Free to visit, the exhibition is a splendid and emotional representation to celebrate a masterpiece novel, a brilliant movie, an extraordinary cast, Sicily and a whole era.
