Each of these friends falls in love with the beautiful Luciana, an aspiring actress, testing the friendship and idealism they all shared.

8 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in Italian and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The prismatic portrait of the days and nights of a party girl in sixties Rome is a revelation. It follows the gorgeous, seemingly liberated Adriana as she dallies with a wide variety of men, attends parties, goes to modeling gigs, and circulates among the rich and famous. Despite its often light tone, though, the film is a stealth portrait of a suffocating culture that regularly dehumanizes people, especially women

La terrazza by Ettore Scola( Visual )

45 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps a little over-ambitious for the casual audience unfamiliar with the Italian world of entertainment and politics, La terrazza involves a total of eight main protagonists and how they have changed or are changing. All eight are sitting on a terrace talking, while flashbacks and flashforwards fill in their past, present, and future relationships. Enrico is a burnt-out screenwriter, Amedeo is a self-made producer, Mario is a communist member of parliament who is having an affair with the married Giovanna and is otherwise having a hard time trying to tow the tough, virtuous line the party demands. Giovanna, as well as the other women on the terrace, have all the spirit of people looking forward to the future while the men have been there and found it wanting."--Eleanor Mannikka, All movie guide as seen on

Leone, who had previously been quiet about his Jewish heritage, soon finds himself having to deal with the sanctions being levied against Jewish citizens.
