Shortlisted holiday #reading #shelfie... will it be #TheHouseoftheSpirits by #IsabelAllende, #Shantaram by #GregoryDavidRoberts, #TheGardenoftheFinziContinis by #GiorgioBassani or #LoveintheTimeofCholera by #GabrielGarciaMarquez?

How many years have passed since that far-off June afternoon? More than thirty. And yet, if I close my eyes, Micòl Finzi-Contini is still there, leaning over her garden wall, looking at me and talking to me #giorgiobassani #ilgiardinodeifinzicontini #thegardenofthefinzicontinis Image #dominiquesanda

#italianactor #agostinabelli in the #1976 #dinorisi film #thecareerofachambermaid, one of several #1970s #italianmovies fascinated by the country’s #fascist past - particularly during the #1930s and #1940s. The original Italian title was #telefonibianchi, which referred to Italy’s #whitetelephone films made in Italy in the #30s in imitation of #americancomedies of the time. These often boasted sumptuous #artdeco sets featuring white phones, a status symbol of bourgeois wealth. Mirroring the ideology of Italy’s fascist regime, they were politically and socially conservative. Other #1970smovies looking back on early fascism in Italy included #theconformist, #thegardenofthefinzicontinis, #1900 and #saloorthe120daysofsodom. #artdecorevival #1970sactors #revolver #bluebeard #thepurpletaxi #yvesboisset #italianhistory

#TheGardenOfTheFinziContinis by #VittorioDeSica is a terrifying drama that comes sans mind-boggling violence. Set in Italy during #Mussolini's incumbency, the mood of the film is, in fact, quaint and languid. You never really witness the terror that accumulate around the period's #antisemitic weather, until the film reaches its disturbingly open-ended finale.

The most striking element in the enterprise, however, is the imposing Finzi-Continis garden that forms a precise metaphor for the family's dismissal of the tragedy around them. Their attempt to veil the nation's intolerant ambience with a layer of aristocracy is eventually deemed listless. The worth and security of a practicing Jew stand exposed in the starkest terms as the curtains fall. Not to mention the love story that comes with a fair share of subtexts hinting upon conformation and eventual surrendering to the partner with power and privilege.

Rustic cabin on Lockatong Creek. It’s rumored to have been used for meetings of Hitler Youth during World War II. I garden above this evocative place. Should I be reminding myself of the garden of the Finzi-Continis? #lockatongcreek #horroroftrump #hitleryouth #thegardenofthefinzicontinis #federaltwist

Giorgio Bassani, best known for his 1962 novel “The Garden of the Finzi-Continis.” (later an Oscar Award winning film directed by Vittorio de Sica) Andrea Pesaro’s family was the inspiration for the novel, his mother’s maiden name was Finzi-Magrini.
“The Garden of the Finzi-Continis” was an instant best-seller in Italy. Before World War ll it deals with an upper-crust Jewish family that lived in Ferrara in a former ducal palace, surrounded by a twenty-acre park, in the heart of the city. The close-knit clan is aloof and exhausted in the face of ever tightening religious racial laws that will spell their demise. Alberto and his sister Micòl pass the time playing tennis and daydreaming as the Holocaust looms. 🎾 Pesaro lives mostly in Milan, but he spends weekends in the family’s Ferrara residence. The private tennis court is decrepit now. 🎾 Writer Giorgio Bassani played tennis there after he was cast out of the city’s private club, in 1938, for being a Jew. Today, Bassani’s name can be found on the club’s championship trophy, and his photo adorns a courtside pergola, showing the young ace in crisp whites with brilliantined hair. 🎾 “The real tragedy of the Italian Jews,” Bassani said in a 1984 interview, “and no one had ever actually said it, were, for the most part, convinced Fascists. I said it and I repeat it, the rabbi of Ferrara and others were great friends of Italo Balbo.” The Ferrara-born Balbo, who was Mussolini’s heir apparent, was killed in an air attack over Libya in 1940. Bassani’s father joined the Fascist Party even before Il Duce came to power in 1922, while Bassani enlisted in the resistance before 1938. “My religion was that of liberty,” the author said after the war, proclaiming himself capable of writing with total clarity about his fellow-Jews without being “partisan.”
