Le Novelle Della Pescara

Rome: Aquila Cinematografica, 1974. Two Draft scripts and one treatment script for an unproduced television miniseries, bound together in a black binder. Text in English.

Loosely based on Italian writer Gabriele D'Annunzio's 1902 collection "De Novelle Della Pescara". A triad of violent, often romantic fables about three women--a nun whose downfall is desire, a widow who begins a romance with a long-lost love, and a vain actress who plays at nobility.

Set in Italy.
