Paisan by Roberto Rossellini ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 segment 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
