Italian-localised title list
#1
Localized foreign versions of films are part of cinema history too but they have been disappearing since the introduction of the DVD. Aside from their historical value, transfers made in European countries from their own 35mm copies are rarely re-touched and restored and often give us a glimpse on how the film originally looked and in some cases localized foreign credits can even be a key element for creating textless versions in more advanced preservation projects that we do here.

Following the footsteps of fellow member Stamper, here's a list of films published or released in high definition with Italian localized credits.

*This list was created thanks to the help from followers of my blog and I keep it updated as more titles are confirmed to me.
In general, all films released in Italy by RAI / 01 Distribution make use of Italian DCP as their source (list on Amazon here) but I only add titles to the list as they are confirmed to me

I have an Italian DVD of Le Grande Bleu with Italian credits if that's any use

Has a very blue tint to it as well which was weird

I tend to stick to listing HD releases only, at least for this thread, because DVDs from Italian transfers are too many to list along with blurays. I'll make a separate thread for those.

The blue tint on your DVD might be an issue that came from an odd transfer, they often used tv masters, which are transfers stocked on magnetic tape. That's something that should always be considered when judging colors.
