    • Synopsis
    • The soul of the Leopard is the soul of Sicily: solar, violent, immutable and indomitable, forged to withstand 25 centuries of invasions without ever losing its luster. But it is also its nature: melancholic, fatalistic, lazy ... this is how Tomasi di Lampedusa described the "Sicilian". Five years later, in 1963, Luchino Visconti put this soul to the rhythm of a waltz that conquered the whole world.
      But what happened after all these years? Were the promises made by Chevalley to the Prince of Salina kept? What happened to the civilians who wanted to replace the nobility? What became of the Prince of Salina, Don Calogero, Don Ciccio Tumeo, Tancredi, Angelica?
