EUROPEAN BOOK CLUB 2017: IL GATTOPARDO (1958) by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa


The most famous statement in Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa’s Il Gattopardo (The Leopard) is: “If we want things to stay as they are, things will have to change”. Franco Gallippi’s reading examines the question of change in an Italy on the threshold of Unification, and takes a close look at the phenomenon of gattopardismo with frequent references to Luchino Visconti’s film adaptation of the novel.

Franco Gallippi completed his PhD thesis, Calvino: Reader of Leopardi and Galileo, at the University of Toronto in 2007. He was Assistant Professor at McMaster University in Hamilton, where he taught Italian language, literature, and cinema for four years. He is presently teaching Italian language and literature courses at the Italian Cultural Institute in Toronto, and working on the manuscript for a book on Italo Calvino. His publications have appeared as chapters in books, and in academic journals such as Quaderni di Italianistica, Rivista di Studi Italiani, and Italian Canadiana.
