This is what SF/Arts curator Sura Wood had to say about Luchino Visconti: Cinema of Struggle and Splendor :

The literary-minded Visconti—an ardent Communist from a wealthy Milanese family—was an architect of lavish historical melodramas with splendid production design. He is the subject of a retrospective series at BAMPFA. “The Leopard,” starring Burt Lancaster as a member of the failing Sicilian aristocracy, and the brutal saga, “Rocco and His Brothers,” are among the films shown here.
