Open city by Roberto Rossellini( Visual )

179 editions published between 1944 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shot in the still war-torn streets of Rome shortly after the Nazi withdrawal, Roberto Rossellinis̉ 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

C'eravamo tanto amati by Ettore Scola( Visual )

"In a retrospective allegory, Ettore Scola examines the lives of three resistance fighters and their transformation over thirty years. Each of these friends falls in love with the beautiful Luciana, an aspiring actress, testing the friendship and idealism they all shared. Throughout the story Scola pays tribute to the masters of Italian cinema by weaving classic film clips and iconic personalities into the background, as the film reveals which of the three friends remains true to the spirit of liberation they had once fought to achieve."--Container
