Luchino Visconti: In costume

A section devoted to one of the towering figures of Italian cinema but seen from a specific angle. “Luchino Visconti: In Costume” highlights all the period movies created by the director: lavish visions of Italian and German history, spectacular, sophisticated representations of the past. Located at the intersection of opera and drama, Visconti’s historical narratives created a model for cinematic forays into the past. Thanks to its sublime uses of mise-en-scene, décor, costumes and props, films like The Leopard or Senso provide the audience with an immersive experience of looking back and discovering vanished cultures and communities.
