Why: On popular demand a Cannes Award winning masterpiece from 1963 has been restored: Il Gattopardo (The Leopard), based on a novel by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. It features a family (starring Burt Lancaster) of noble descent in Sicily in the 1860's.
The Leopard (Italian: Il Gattopardo) is a novel by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa that chronicles the changes in Sicilian life and society during the Risorgimento. Published posthumously in 1958, after two rejections by the leading Italian publishing houses Mondadori and Einaudi, it became the top-selling novel in Italian history and is considered one of the most important novels in modern Italian literature. The novel was also made into an award-winning 1963 film of the same name, directed by Luchino Visconti and starring Burt Lancaster, Claudia Cardinale and Alain Delon.
