Browsing in the splendid halls

the leopard

 

Yesterday I accompanied friend to the Rozzi Academy, while she were speaking with a person, i went browsing in the splendid halls of the seat of the Academy.

Mirrors, gold, marble, a real wonder…the mind lost behind balls in period costume…all these remind me the great ball, so well described in the book The Leopard written by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa,  that was used as occasion by Tancredi to introduce his fiancée Angelica to society.

In the movie The Leopard (1963) by the great director Luchino Visconti, based on the novel, the two lovers were played by two beautiful actors of the time, Alain Delon and Claudia Cardinale. The two actors will be perfect dancing in these majestic halls.

 

 

Ieri ho accompagnato un’amica all’Accademia dei Rozzi, mentre lei parlava con una persona io sono andata a curiosare per le belle sale della sede dell’Accademia.

Specchi, ori, marmi, una vera meraviglia…la mente persa dietro a balli in costume…mi hanno ricordato il ballo, così ben descritto nel libro Il Gattopardo di Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, durante il quale Tancredi presenta in società la sua fidanzata Angelica.

Nel film di Luchino Visconti, tratto dal romanzo, del 1963 i due fidanzati sono interpretati da due bellissimi del periodo, Alain Delon e Claudia Cardinale. I due attori sarebbero perfetti in queste sale maestose.
