There are allusions to his poems about Venice in the novella, and like Aschenbach, he died of cholera on an Italian island.

This is almost literally the only physical characteristic the boy has in the movie; and Visconti lays on the turns, looks, and smiles with such a heavy hand that the boy could almost be accused of hustling. This cinematic achievement is unmatched in its visual eloquence, but remains an emotionally unsatisfying experience.
