Inscribed by the author in blue ink on the front free endpaper "A Don Gonzales / molto cordialmente / Luchino Visconti / Roma 1965". Italian stage and film director Luchino Visconti (1906 - 1976) is considered one of the founding fathers of the Italian neorealism film movement. As his career progressed, however, he produced more lavish films that spanned a range of historical periods. More than just a neorealist director, Visconti was one of the greatest international film directors that emerged from the post-war Italian cinema.
