La Gazza Ladra

Been crazy busy recently so little posting. So I'll build on a previous post I wrote in April about the 'stained glass-like' artist Emmanuelle Luzzati.
I've found his most 'stained glassy' looking film. La Gazza Ladra, 1965. It's also the first Luzzati/Giannini film I ever saw, and it's still my favorite. The name translates as "The Theiving Magpie", and the music is an overture by Gioachino Rossini.

And yes, one of the reasons I do like this is that it is his most stained glassy and there are any number of frames that could easily be translated to stained glass.
