Italian westerns

by ElTigreNegro

Italy gave westerns a very unique identity. What began as pale imitations of american films quickly became a universe of it’s own. Stylish, operatic films, memorable scores, anti-heros and climatic duels. Leone and his iconic films are the most well known examples of the genre, but there’s much more to explore regarding spaguetti westerns.
