Italian term or phrase: in preda ad ilarità sviscerata
Contesto:

Il giorno dopo, il povero Bonarelli fu decapitato da un Galeazzo Ciano infuriato, mentre il sole romano illuminava un Trianon in preda ad ilarità sviscerata, fornendo motivo di conversazione e di pettegolezzi che cessarono soltanto quando il silenzio calò su tutto quel palcoscenico irreale.

Molte Grazie,
