Open city by Roberto Rossellini( Visual )

216 editions published between 1945 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shot in the still war-torn streets of Rome shortly after the Nazi withdrawal, Roberto Rossellini's Open City is considered his greatest work. Shot on scavenged ends of film, this classic war saga in which members of the Italian resistance try to smuggle badly needed cash out of Nazi-occupied Rome, helped define Italian neorealism. It was so real in fact, that audiences were convinced the actors were amateurs and, even though Federico Fellini has a writing credit, the film was improvised

Winner of the Golden Lion at the 1959 Venice Film Festival, directed by Roberto Rossellini and featuring world cinema icon Vittoria de Sica (The bicycle thief), Il generale della rovere is a film based on the true story of Emanuele Bardone, who, during the height of WWII, exploits his fellow Italians by telling them that he will find their missing loved ones in exchange for money. When he attempts to save a man who had already been executed, he is turned over by the man's wife and is forced to become a spy in the Nazi prison for one of the German commanders, Colonel Mueller (Hannes Messemer). Under the false identity of Generale della Rovere, he is ordered to bring the Italian resistance fighters among the prisoners out into the open.

Rossellini's history films : renaissance and enlightenment by Roberto Rossellini( Visual )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in Italian and English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the final phase of his career, Italian master Roberto Rossellini embarked on a dramatic, daunting project: a series of television films about knowledge and history, made in an effort to teach, where contemporary media were failing. Looking at the Western world's major figures and moments, yet focusing on the small details of daily life, Rossellini was determined not to recount history but to relive it, as it might have been, unadorned but full of the drama of the everyday. This selection of Rossellini's history films presents "The Age of the Medici," "Cartesius," and "Blaise Pascal"--Works that don't just enliven the past but illuminate the ideas that brought us to where we are today"--Container
