“The Tragedy, the Beauty, the Book: the films of Luchino Visconti from Dostoevskij to D’Annunzio”. Lecture by Dr. Carlo Coen

Dr. Carlo Coen, lecturer of Italian Cinema at York University, will explore the relationship between Literature and Luchino Visconti’s filmography from The White Nights (1957) to The Innocent (1976). Dr. Coen will focus on several important films by the Milanese director: Rocco and His Brothers, The Leopard and the so-called "German Trilogy" (The Damned, Death in Venice, Ludwig) to emphasize the re-elaboration of mainstream Italian and European Literature that characterizes Visconti's cinema.
