Hommage Claudia Cardinale - IL GATTOPARDO (Luchino Visconti, I/F 1963)

In the organizer's words:

In 1860, at the time of unification efforts in Italy, an elderly prince (Burt Lancaster) comes to terms with the rising bourgeois-liberal forces by marrying his nephew (Alain Delon) to the daughter (Claudia Cardinale) of the opportunistic mayor. At a ball, old and new society come together in a grandiose dance of death. Luchino Visconti gave Claudia Cardinale "the most beautiful gift of my life" with the role of Angelica. (CC) "She went down in film history with the waltz from IL GATTOPARDO: Enveloped in the blossom-white, now legendary ball gown of tulle and organza, the young Claudia Cardinale dances with the ageing Prince of Salina as Angelica, representative of the new bourgeois class, triumphing over the dying, morbid bodies of the aristocratic ladies. In her impetuous physicality, Visconti stylizes her into a radiant angel of death." (Marisa Buovolo)
