Publisher's description: A lavish volume celebrating the award winning classic film Conversation Piece, featuring the costumes designed by Fendi and including an exclusive DVD with a newly restored version of the film plus extras. This volume presents Conversation Piece, the iconic movie from 1974 by Luchino Visconti, and includes a newly restored version of the film plus numerous interviews on a special DVD available exclusively in the U.S. as part of this book. Conceived by Visconti as a critique of the jet set similar to Fellini's La Dolce Vita, the film features a star studded international cast including Burt Lancaster, Silvana Mangano, and Helmut Berger. The book showcases the beautiful set designs from the movie and the costumes designed by Fendi, and chronicles how pleased Visconti was with the designs for the film. It includes important documents and behind-the-scenes information about the creation of Silvana Mangano's chic costumes and the appearance of Fendi furs in several key scenes.
