A New Film Version Of The Leopard

Back at the end of May, when I was in Palermo, I was fortunate to witness the filming of a new version of Il Gattopardo (or The Leopard), the novel by Giuseppe Tomaso di Lampedusa for Netflix. The Visconti original from 1963 with Burt Lancaster as the nobile Prince Don Fabrizio, will be hard to top!

Here’s a shot I took while waiting to pass through the set. It will be some months before we’ll see this, so plan your trip to Sicily now before everyone else does!
