Posterity hasn't been all that kind to Francesco Landini, the Italian composer whose deftly crafted polyphonic harmonies were all the rage in 14th-century Florence. Barely remembered in the modern era, Landini was also an eloquent librettist, penning his singable odes to love, beauty and desire just decades after the great Florentine poet Dante had wrested these once taboo topics from the closed recesses of the medieval mind. But aesthetic justice has triumphed, for Signor Landini is a forgotten man no longer.

There couldn't be a more timely movie version of the European immigrant experience than The Golden Door. In an era when TV newscasters can accuse illegal immigrants of spreading leprosy, this tale of a Sicilian family sailing to America a century ago shows U.S. fear of the outsider posing as pseudo-science even at Ellis Island. The Golden Door (Miramax) Starring Vincenzo Amato, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Aurora Quattrocchi, Francesco Casisa, Filippo Pucillo. Directed by Emanuele Crialese. Rated PG-13.

Francesco Legaluppi fits well into his Italian-designed, American-made suit. He glances at posters of Columbus in his sixth-floor Light Street offices. And he says he's sure the Italian government won't shut him down. At least not soon."Consulates were started to handle all the shipping that came through ports, and keep seamen out of trouble," says Mr. Legaluppi, the Italian consul serving Baltimore and most of Maryland. "Now Baltimore has declined as a port city . . . and the consular budgets are tighter every year.

In the first four minutes of Gianni Amelio's "Open Doors," a civil servant named Tommaso Scalia (Ennio Fantastichini) sharpens his bayonet, walks into the office from which he has just been fired and murders both the man who fired him and the one who replaced him. After that, he drives his wife to a secluded place, rapes her brutally and then, after urinating against a tree, calmly shoots the sobbing woman in the back of the head.The next 104 minutes of this film, which is about Scalia's trial for these three murders, makes clear that he is an even worse human being than the opening told us: An ugly fascist with delusions of grandeur, he makes the Willie Hortons of the world look like Albert Schweitzer.

The 84th Maryland Open Championship went to a sudden-death playoff yesterday, but a sudden phone call decided the winner. While pros Gary Mankulish and Wayne DeFrancesco were on the course at Woodholme Country Club in Pikesville, headed to their second playoff hole, Maryland State Golf Association officials received word that Mankulish's membership in the Mid-Atlantic PGA had been suspended. Pros in the Maryland Open are required to be MAPGA members in good standing, so Mankulish was disqualified, and DeFrancesco, playing on his home course, was declared winner of his third Maryland Open title.

Followed by a gallery of 20, professional golfers Wayne DeFrancesco of Columbia and Gary Mankulish of Rockville took the lead after the second round in the 84th Maryland Open Championship yesterday at Woodholme Country Club in Pikesville. DeFrancesco, a teaching professional at Woodholme, finished the day with 70 on the par-71 course to bring his total coming into today's final round to 141. He birdied the ninth hole but otherwise shot par with a strong short game. DeFrancesco, who won the event in 1994 and 1995 and tied for fifth last year, was tied for third after the first round.

Arrivederci, Francesco. Avanti, Bert.Heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, scaring off opponents from all parts of the globe, will now face Smokin' Bert Cooper instead of Italy's Francesco Damiani Saturday night at the Omni in Atlanta.Damiani, a substitute for Mike Tyson, who pulled out of a $H scheduled Nov. 8 bout with Holyfield with a rib injury last month, himself begged off yesterday, pleading an ankle injury. Holyfield's camp and HBO, which will televise the bout, approved Cooper as an opponent yesterday afternoon while casting a doubtful eye on the sincerity of Damiani's injury claim.

STUFF LIKE this item, which began with a question from a Columbia runner seeking advice for a badly sprained ankle, can make an aging body (and probably some not so old) wonder what the heck this country is coming to. The runner was graphic artist Erin Phelps, 31, who has been training for her first marathon - the Marine Corps event Oct. 26 in Washington. The Hammond High alumna had built up to 16 miles, she said, and was following a regimen that would have had her ready physically for the full 26-plus miles just in time.

CHASKA, Minn. -- Despite all their years competing on the Mid-Atlantic PGA, Fred Funk and Wayne DeFrancesco have never played together in a regular event. By the time Funk had started to establish himself after his career coaching at the University of Maryland, DeFrancesco's career was derailed by injuries. That changes today. The two Maryland-area pros -- Funk is from College Park but now lives in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.; DeFrancesco was born in Washington but lives in Columbia -- will be part of a threesome in the first two rounds of the 84th PGA Championship at Hazeltine National.
