Extrait du résumé figurant sur la jaquette : Témoignage brut et sans concession de la résistance du peuple romain face à l'occupant allemand, Rome ville ouverte est animé d'un souci d'authenticité rarement atteint par le septième art. S'inspirant de faits réels, tourné à chaud dans un style documentaire débarrassé des oripeaux mélodramatiques traditionnels, le chef-d'œuvre de Rossellini est considéré à juste titre comme le premier film "néo-réaliste", ouvrant la voie à un des courants majeurs du cinéma mondial

Six stories set during the liberation of Italy at the end of World War II, taking place as the Allies moved north, from Sicily to the Po Valley. Rossellini's film is unusual in that it relies on non-actors to tell the story of the Allies advance through Italy. The first story takes place in Sicily where an American G.I. meets a Sicilian girl during the Allied landing. In the last segment, the Allies have advanced to the Po valley. Italian partisans and OSS commandos engage with retreating German forces in the marshlands surrounding the Po river. The Germans retalitate by executing all the inhabitants of a nearby village

"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

City of women = La città delle donne by Federico Fellini( Visual )

6 editions published between 1980 and 2017 in Italian and English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La citta delle donne, 1980) parece la película de una persona que no termina de comprender lo que está sucediendo en el mundo. Fellini no entiende cómo su visión del mundo femenino conlleva una consideración de la mujer como objeto. Desde esa imposibilidad para objetivar y comprender su propia perspectiva de la realidad, el director italiano hace una película que presenta en sus entrañas una contradicción absoluta. La ciudad de las mujeres parece la película de un director que pide disculpas. Su alter ego fílmico, un cada vez más desubicado Mastroianni, solicita el perdón del mundo femenino por su recién descubierto machismo recalcitrante. Y sin embargo, La ciudad de las mujeres es una de las películas más machistas que este redactor haya visto jamás. Fellini pide perdón e insulta a la vez, no entiende la imagen que proyecta su imaginario y convierte su película en una ofensa a la dignidad de las mujeres y al buen gusto. La ciudad de las mujeres es una película machista. Todo el frag
