    Elegiac, bittersweet and profoundly moving, The Leopard chronicles the turbulent transformation of the Risorgimento, in the period of Italian Unification. The waning feudal authority of the elegant and stately Prince of Salina is pitted against the materialistic cunning of Don Calogero, in Tomasi's magnificently descriptive memorial to a dying age.

    Sicilia, all'epoca del tramonto borbonico. È di scena una famiglia della più alta aristocrazia, colta nel momento del trapasso del regime, mentre già incalzano i tempi nuovi. Accentrato intorno all'imponente personaggio del principe Fabrizio Salina, il romanzo offre un'immagine del clima di disincanto e di speranze deluse che seguì l'unificazione nazionale.

    Set in the 1860s, The Leopard tells the spellbinding story of a decadent, dying Sicilian aristocracy threatened by the approaching forces of democracy and revolution. The dramatic sweep and richness of observation, the seamless intertwining of public and private worlds, and the grasp of human frailty imbue The Leopard with its particular melancholy beauty and power, and place it among the greatest historical novels of our time

    Dans la froideur d'un café turinois, Paolo Corbèra, Palermitain exilé en Italie du Nord, rencontre le sénateur Rosario la Ciura. D'une nostalgie commune de la Sicile naît une singulière amitié au détour de laquelle le sénateur raconte son histoire : durant l'été 1887, il vit une passion extraordinaire avec une sirène nommée Lighea, fille de Calliope. Dans la moiteur d'Augusta, le jeune professeur et l'étrange créature vivent une romance ensorcelante, qui révèle le professeur à lui-même.
