Open city by Roberto Rossellini( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in Italian and held by 212 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.

Journey to Italy by Roberto Rossellini( Visual )

6 editions published in 2013 in 3 languages and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among the most influential films of the postwar era, Robert Rossellini's Journey to Italy (Viaggio in Italia) charts the declining marriage of a couple from England (Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders) on a trip in the countryside near Naples. More than just the anatomy of a relationship, Rossellini's masterpiece is a heartrending work of emotion and spirituality. Considered a predecessor to the existentialist works of Michelangelo Antonioni and hailed as a groundbreaking modernist work by the legendary film journal Cahiers du cinéma, Journey to Italy is a breathtaking cinematic benchmark." -- Container
