#15: L’Innocente (Luchino Visconti, 1976)

This episode features an audio essay on Luchino Visconti’s final film L’Innocente (The Innocent), discussing the film’s themes of dishonesty, self-interest, and religion. I also explore the sharp dichotomy between interior and exterior spaces, and how it parallels the cultural and psychological restraints entrapping the lead characters.

Plus, some quick news updates on the David di Donatello awards, film festivals, new restorations, and more.


This episode features the following music excerpts from the film’s soundtrack by Franco Mannino:

  • “L’innocente: Andante per pianoforte e violoncello”
  • “Marcia turca dalla Sonata K 331”
