Luigi Comencini[edit]

My first work as member of the Project is the biography of the recently died Luigi Comencini. I also made C'eravamo tanto amati and the two Brancaleones some time ago. Bye and good work. --Attilios 18:53, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

David di Donatello[edit]

After doing half Nastro d'Argento, I've started with David di Donatello awards. It's a lot of work, but it's an excellent start because there's a list of important films (the best), directors, actors, etc that aren't at wikipedia, and deserve to be at.

By the way, I've seen that Federico Fellini and Bernardo Bertolucci have got template for their filmography on their pages. Even Lina Wertmüller has got a template list !!!!

I think that Michelangelo Antonioni, Roberto Rossellini, Luchino Visconti and Vittorio De Sica DESERVE template too. Do you agree? I don't know how to create a template.

Rohmerin 08:55, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Agreed, I can make the templates. - AKeen 14:53, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
Done, done and done. See {{Antonioni}}, {{Rossellini}}, {{Visconti}} and {{De Sica}} - AKeen 16:35, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Great templates. Muchas gracias. I¡m working with Visconti's filmo and improving all his films with categories. Rohmerin 18:41, 17 August 2007 (UTC)


in Italian wikipedia there's more photographs with Alberto Sordi. In English, for Clara Calamai and Massimo Girotti, we can use Ossessione film poster (faces of the 2 actors). I don't know how to upload images or use which I talk. If anyone can put the pics, it would be great. Rohmerin 09:50, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

On Italian wikipedia there's a picture of Pietro Germi

Rossellini's La Paura[edit]

I'd like to create La Paura, but I don't know if it's better to do it as La Paura, or La Paura (Fear), or (Fear 19.. film).

any thoughts??? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rohmerin (talkcontribs) 16:52, 14 June 2007 (UTC).

I think "La Paura" or "Fear" would be the best two choices, depending on whether you want to use the English name. I've also seen it called "Angst". By the way, if you do title it Fear, it should be "Fear (1954 film)". --PhantomS 21:35, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
Maybe Angst (La paura) was better, because, although it's an Italian film, it was shot in Germany and spoken in German (including Ingrid Bergman). So, I don't know. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rohmerin (talkcontribs) 11:17, 15 June 2007 (UTC).
If you do use the title Angst, should not have the (La Paura) after it. The title would be "Angst (1954 film)". The Italian title would be included in the article. By the way, please sign your posts with --~~~~. --PhantomS 12:42, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

Working through the list[edit]

I recently added The Lady Without Camelias and Garibaldi (film), and will be working my way through the list in the upcoming few weeks. - AKeen 16:46, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Well done! Keep up the good work. Girolamo Savonarola 22:24, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Claudia Cardinale[edit]

Be careful with Cardinale. I've edited on her filmography La pantera rosa, because it's the Spanish title for The Pink Panther, and there was more Italian titles in English speaking films such as masterpiece "Conversation piece (film)".

By the way, "Il magistrato" is a wonderful hidden and forgotten drama. I loved it.

I edit: I always fogot to sign up.

Rohmerin 18:51, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

I've added Marcello Mastroianni's filmography on his page because it was missing. Rohmerin 07:44, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

il sorpasso[edit]

the Italian page for The Easy Life is pretty good. If somebody can translate it... I'm a dissaster with traslations. Rohmerin 09:03, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Ciao tutti. Come on guys! Am I the only worker here? Rohmerin 18:43, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

You might want to talk with Wikipedia:WikiProject Italy, as I'm certain they'd be interested. (This task force does technically need to be shared with them.) We also have a translation department which could definitely use some work to get it stimulated.... Girolamo Savonarola 21:32, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Rohmerin you know I do work on this from time to time but I can't focus entirely on Italian film even though this is one of my principal areas ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ "Talk"? 16:33, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

I re-watch il sorpasso and it's a VERY important Italian film. I vote this film for "collaboration of the month" or something like that. Rohmerin (talk) 18:25, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Up a grade?[edit]

I added refs, did a search for reviews et cetera and cleaned "Titus" up using cquote and stuff, whatcha think? it was a bit all over the place when i decided to finally do something with it, by the way, ive just finished my score page for it but i dont think it would be good to merge them as my score page is practically a half decent album page in its own right, thanks again! Adore Italy. :D Terrasidius (talk) 00:29, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

I'd keep the album as its own page; that tends to be standard practice, as I recall. As for the article, it's a good start at cleanup, but I would actually get rid of the block quote (it is far too short for blocking), and get rid of the Trivia/Misc section by either sourcing and integrating into prose, or deleting where that cannot be done. Also, the references themselves could use some cleanup into proper format, and keep in mind that IMDb is not considered a reliable source. Lastly and most important: there needs to be a plot section! :) Girolamo Savonarola (talk) 03:23, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

General ref[edit]

Hello. I recently rewrote List of Italian submissions for Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and would like to try for featured list status, but I need a general reference that lists the submissions. An example of one is this for List of Japanese submissions for Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, which I also wrote and is at WP:FLC right now. Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Sephiroth BCR (Converse) 07:04, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Changes to the WP:1.0 assessment scheme[edit]

As you may have heard, we at the Wikipedia 1.0 Editorial Team recently made some changes to the assessment scale, including the addition of a new level. The new description is available at WP:ASSESS.

  • The new C-Class represents articles that are beyond the basic Start-Class, but which need additional references or cleanup to meet the standards for B-Class.
  • The criteria for B-Class have been tightened up with the addition of a rubric, and are now more in line with the stricter standards already used at some projects.
  • A-Class article reviews will now need more than one person, as described here.

Each WikiProject should already have a new C-Class category at Category:C-Class_articles. If your project elects not to use the new level, you can simply delete your WikiProject's C-Class category and clarify any amendments on your project's assessment/discussion pages. The bot is already finding and listing C-Class articles.

Please leave a message with us if you have any queries regarding the introduction of the revised scheme. This scheme should allow the team to start producing offline selections for your project and the wider community within the next year. Thanks for using the Wikipedia 1.0 scheme! For the 1.0 Editorial Team, §hepBot (Disable) 21:53, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia 0.7 articles have been selected for Italian cinema[edit]

Wikipedia 0.7 is a collection of English Wikipedia articles due to be released on DVD, and available for free download, later this year. The Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team has made an automated selection of articles for Version 0.7.

We would like to ask you to review the articles selected from this project. These were chosen from the articles with this project's talk page tag, based on the rated importance and quality. If there are any specific articles that should be removed, please let us know at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.7. You can also nominate additional articles for release, following the procedure at Wikipedia:Release Version Nominations.

A list of selected articles with cleanup tags, sorted by project, is available. The list is automatically updated each hour when it is loaded. Please try to fix any urgent problems in the selected articles. A team of copyeditors has agreed to help with copyediting requests, although you should try to fix simple issues on your own if possible.

We would also appreciate your help in identifying the version of each article that you think we should use, to help avoid vandalism or POV issues. These versions can be recorded at this project's subpage of User:SelectionBot/0.7. We are planning to release the selection for the holiday season, so we ask you to select the revisions before October 20. At that time, we will use an automatic process to identify which version of each article to release, if no version has been manually selected. Thanks! For the Wikipedia 1.0 Editorial team, SelectionBot 22:42, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Move of films with Italian titles[edit]

Please see this on WP:AN/I. (Despite the title, some of the films are Italian, not Spanish.) Ed Fitzgerald t / c 04:53, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Article alerts[edit]

This is a notice to let you know about Article alerts, a fully-automated subscription-based news delivery system designed to notify WikiProjects and Taskforces when articles are entering Articles for deletion, Requests for comment, Peer review and other workflows (full list). The reports are updated on a daily basis, and provide brief summaries of what happened, with relevant links to discussion or results when possible. A certain degree of customization is available; WikiProjects and Taskforces can choose which workflows to include, have individual reports generated for each workflow, have deletion discussion transcluded on the reports, and so on. An example of a customized report can be found here.

If you are already subscribed to Article Alerts, it is now easier to report bugs and request new features. We are also in the process of implementing a "news system", which would let projects know about ongoing discussions on a wikipedia-wide level, and other things of interest. The developers also note that some subscribing WikiProjects and Taskforces use the display=none parameter, but forget to give a link to their alert page. Your alert page should be located at "Wikipedia:PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.

Message sent by User:Addbot to all active wiki projects per request, Comments on the message and bot are welcome here.

Thanks. — Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 09:17, 15 March, 2009 (UTC)

Un amore perfetto[edit]

Hello there, Italian cinema task force. I just started an article for the above-linked film, in case anyone here is interested in tagging / categorizing / improving etc. I don't know how active this task force is, but I'd appreciate having another set of eyes look this over. Thanks! - Townlake (talk) 23:24, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Looks like a good start! When you start a film article, don't forget to go to its talk page and add the {{Film}} template there! For example, I added the template at Talk:Un amore perfetto and marked the article to fall under the Italian film task force and to reassess as Stub-class until there is further expansion. —Erik (talkcontrib) 15:09, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the fast feedback and support, Erik! Townlake (talk) 17:07, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Following up, I'm planning to expand on this movie's casting / characters and critical reaction in Italy (apparently it was mostly dismissive, heh) after this weekend. In the meantime I've also been tinkering with the below project... Townlake (talk) 15:31, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Le ragazze di San Frediano[edit]

I noticed this was listed as a To-Do for the Task Force, and I've started to put together notes for Le ragazze di San Frediano in my sandbox.

The challenge here is there are three possible articles for this subject: the 1949 Pratolini novel, the 1954 film, and the 2007 TV miniseries. On Italian Wikipedia there is an article for the book and an article for the miniseries. Apparently no separate article (yet) for the 1954 movie.

I could just boldly start one article under the heading of the novel, and let the '54 and '07 adaptations split off organically later, but as this is listed as something the Task Force wants to do eventually anyway, I wanted to bring it here first to see if you folks have any thoughts. Thanks! Townlake (talk) 15:31, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

If you feel like each topic can stand on its own under Wikipedia's notability standards, you can create a stub article for each topic. I recommend putting a few references in each article to solidify its case for notability to visitors. Would any of these topics be covered in English-language publications? I could try to help with references if that's the case. —Erik (talkcontrib) 16:48, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
You got it - the English-language sources issue is my main struggle. I've found some commentary on the novel and some tidbits on the '54 movie, but for the '07 miniseries I've found nothing in English. I guess that's the main reason I'm inclined to just start one umbrella article right now - WP:N is far easier to satisfy in the short term with one article.
If you do have any insight on places to look for sourcing, I'd appreciate any advice; alternatively, I'm totally okay with shifting this into mainspace any time to let the community start improving it. Townlake (talk) 17:07, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
After a preliminary search, this seems like a small film. "Le ragazze di San Frediano" Google Books only mentions it in passing. An umbrella article would be fine until you can find Italian-language references. Have you tried an Italian Google Search? (I'm assuming you know Italian.) —Erik (talkcontrib) 17:18, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
I do - I'm re-reading the novel in Italian right now, in fact :) I've been trying to avoid leaning too heavily on Italian sources given the English-speaking audience here, but those sources are certainly legitimate to support notability. I'll go ahead and start the umbrella article, and will keep looking for more sources in either language. (And hopefully other editors will too.) Thank you for all your suggestions!
One more question - since this will be an umbrella with the book as the lead, should I template this under the scope of the Italian Cinema Task Force, or hold off on that? Townlake (talk) 17:31, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
I think it's okay to template it (but the article should be in the mainspace first). If you ever create a separate film article, just make sure the template moves over. :) —Erik (talkcontrib) 17:37, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Done. I added the template to the Talk page, but left the class as "???"; I assume it's stub-class, but wanted to leave that assessment to the experts. Thanks again Erik! Townlake (talk) 18:32, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
I populated the template with the necessary fields and added a couple of others, too. :) My pleasure to help. —Erik (talkcontrib) 18:42, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Giovanna Mezzogiorno[edit]

Requesting assistance with this article. An IP has been hard at work transforming the article today, and has overriden my reversions to the prior, sourced version. I'd prefer not to enter an edit war that'll inevitably end in 3RR. Townlake (talk) 17:22, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Unreferenced living people articles bot[edit]

User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects provides a list, updated daily, of unreferenced living people articles (BLPs) related to your project. There has been a lot of discussion recently about deleting these unreferenced articles, so it is important that these articles are referenced.

The unreferenced articles related to your project can be found at >>>Wikipedia:WikiProject Film/Italian cinema task force/Unreferenced BLPs<<<

If you do not want this wikiproject to participate, please add your project name to this list.

Thank you. Okip 02:48, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Italian silent cinema[edit]

Ciao! My name is Joseph and I am happy to join your group. I am currently studying Italian cinema and am specialising in the silent period. I hope you enjoy my articles on Pina Menichelli and Emilio Ghione. I aim to slowly improve the coverage of Italian silent cinema on wikipedia, and hope to be of general help as part of the task force. Thanks, Jnorthdur (talk) 07:35, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Da grande (film)[edit]

Hello, I submitted for approval an article about the film Da grande, but it was declined, although I cited perfectly reliable sources as IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes, and in spite of the fact that the film received in 1988 the Nastro d'argento, an important award assigned by the Sindacato Nazionale dei Giornalisti Cinematografici Italiani, the association of Italian film critics. I would like to have your point of view on this. Thanks! -- (talk) 17:00, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Italian film database?[edit]

Hello. Does anyone know about any official Italian film archive website anywhere to use as a source? I've found some good one for French films and German films, but having one for Italy would be very beneficial. Anyone? Andrzejbanas (talk) 20:10, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

I know it's a few years later, but this site seems to have some information here: Archivio del Cinema Italiano. Going to check the notability of it elsewhere. Andrzejbanas (talk) 12:54, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Women's History Month is in March[edit]


Hi everyone at WikiProject Italian cinema!

Women's history month is around the corner, in March, and we're planning the second WikiWomen's History Month.

This event, which is organized by volunteers from the WikiWomen's Collaborative, supports improving coverage about women's history during the month of March. Events take place both offline and online. We are encouraging WikiProjects to focus on women's history related to their subject for the month of March. Ideas include:

  • Improving coverage about Italian women filmmakers, actors, directors, producers, and executives
  • Developing content about women owned Italian film businesses

We hope you'll participate! You can list your your project focus here, and also help improve our to-do list. Thank you for all you do for Wikipedia! SarahStierch (talk) 21:48, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

Translation help[edit]

In 1970 Francesco Rosi made the magnificent anti-warmovie Many Wars Ago. The Italian title is Oumini Contro, and the film is based on a novel by Emilio Lussu, Un anno sull'altopiano. I've found out that "omini" is plural of "oumo" which means "man" or "human" (Homo Sapiens), and "contro" means "against". Someone has suggested that the title is delibrate disambigous and simply means "Men against". Others have suggested that there is a kind of reflexity in the title and that "Men against themselves" is more correct. Whats's true ? And is a correct translation of "Un anno sull'altopiano" something like "A year at high altitude terrain" (not high in the air). ? Boeing720 (talk) 16:03, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Noi Credevamo: English article[edit]

Seeking assistance with an editing conflict on the English page. Christopher Leonard attempted to add to the English article content from the Italian article by roughly translating from Italian to English. Editor Lugnuts insists that part of the translation does not meet Wikipedia editing standards, namely by asserting that the contested portion of his translation is not verifiable. Christopher believes that it is verifiable, because the contested content on the English article derives from the Italian article; the translation may need improvement, but it should not be ommited. A senior editor or translator might advice the contesting editors. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:34, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
