Documentary Film

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

You can also checkout <www.moviedetective.com>
They have a large selection of Italian movies.
I purchased "Tree of the Wooden Clogs" from them.
It is a very good film.

Really. I did a search for it; found it unavailable on Amazon and on Netflix. Might you have a link? I'd like to see it too.

I checked the site and it is no longer listed. They do have another very good film that
deals with rural life in southern Italy titled "Cristo si e fermato a Eboli".
Go to the web site I posted, click on sort by country, click on Italy,
and search through the titles.

There's also a documentary from PBS called The Italian Americans. It focuses on the Southern Italian a little more than the Northern as far as who immigrated here but it talks about how the Italian immigrants in the US were treated back in the early 1900s to today. It was done in...2015 I think. It's a 4 part series and they're an hour each. I binged watched in on YouTube last night. It's also available on DVD for like $20.
