Un americano a Roma
Movie: Un americano a Roma(1954)[tt0046705] Nando Moriconi is a young Italian living in Rome. He is fond for everything coming from the United States. He tries to speak American-English, to wear clothes he thinks Americans wear, to walk like John Wayne, and to eat cornflakes with ketchup - His life is a parody of the real American way of life that he could not get. Nando's not-so-secret dream is to visit the USA, so he climbs up to the Coliseum and threats to commit suicide if the American Embassy does not give him the visa. But at this point Nando is very well known as a 'crazy-for-USA' boy and the troubles he provoked will not help him. Written byX

I find his interpretation of the young "romano" who wants to be "americano" fantastic, and although I did not like Alberto Sordi when I first came to Italy (1970) I realize I did not understand the humor or the culture, but since then I have seen many of his films , and this remains one of my favourites. It is lively, funny, relaxing, and also shows how the "americanisation" has really come about (cereals for breakfast, fast food, cars, blue jeans) which were a joke then, are everyday reality today) However one thing has however survived, the love for spaghetti by the Italians, in fact one of the scenes I prefer is when Alberto decides to destroy his huge plate of spaghetti, as I like to destroy them in the same way. It is a film that can be seen over and over again . If you want to learn more about the Italians from the "inside" Alberto sordi is the actor to follow in the last 50 years
