Birthplace of the cinematic legacy of Federico Fellini, Italy has long produced some of the world's most celebrated films. The broad range of filmmaking styles is testimony to the array of talent exhibited by Italian directors. While it is hard to choose favorites among so many classic films, we've put together a list of the Classic Top 10 Italian Movies. Guido has a fairytale romance, marrying a beautiful woman from a nearby town. The lovely couple has a son and the family lives together in utter happiness until German forces arrive to occupy Italy. Sent to a Jewish Concentration Camp, Guido must use his usually blissful life outlook to help his son survive the horrors of the war- imagining that the Holocaust is all a game. When the famous Chilean poet Pablo Neruda is exiled to a small Italian island for his politics, his presence is accompanied by a huge increase in mail to the tiny outpost. A friendship soon develops between the two men as il postino develops a love of poetry. Winner of two Oscars, in this autobiographical story Fellini explores the ups and downs of filmmaking.
