Funeral alla Dolce & Gabbana

The 2003 TV advertisement for the Dolce&Gabbana Perfume Sicily, centred around a typical Sicilian funeral caused quite a stir and divided public opinion.

A corpse lying on a bed, mourning relatives, friends and acquaintances who wait patiently to pay their respects, a distraught wife, played by Monica Bellucci. This is the first scene of the Dolce&Gabbana Sicily advertisement clip from 2003.

The scene moves from the house to the funeral procession, with flowers, ladies clad in black shawls and of course the priest. The movie is of course tastefully done, as its directed by Giuseppe Tornatore, while the evocative soundtrack is Ennio Morricone’s work.

The lighting, the music, the raw emotion, as well as the glimpses of underwear, that chaste exterior which hides an irrepressible sexiness. all synthesize the typical images and values Italians, and the rest of the world associate with Sicily.

In light of the week’s festivities, lets indulge in an artistic interpretation of the macabre.
