Visconti’s costume designer is Piero Tosi

Piero Tosi (born April 10, 1927) is an Italian costume designer and collaborator of Luchino Visconti on many of the director’s films, including: Death in Venice (1971), The Leopard (1963), Rocco & His Brothers (1960) , The Damned (1969) and of course “Ludwig” (1972) . He was also the costume designer on “The Night Porter” (1974). An underrated artist if there ever was one.
