Introduction by costume designer Tracy Tynan.

Luchino Visconti directed this epic drama about the family of a 19th-century Sicilian nobleman (Burt Lancaster) and their reactions to their tumultuous times. Based on the book by aristocrat Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, Visconti’s film combines novelistic detail with exquisite cinematic craft, including a romantic score by Nino Rota and the golden-toned cinematography of Giuseppe Rotunno. Costume designer Piero Tosi, a regular Visconti collaborator and a five-time Oscar nominee, received the film’s only nomination. Tosi went on to receive an Honorary Award from the Academy in 2013 as “a visionary whose incomparable costume designs shaped timeless, living art in motion pictures.”
