Dizionario del Western All’Italiana
Mondadori Printing Italy
This excellent book was created using information from the files of RAI by Marco Giusti, in conjunction with the 2008 Venus Film Festival’s salute to the Spaghetti Western. This book is one of the best available on the Spaghetti Western genre. Having no photos does not distract from its strictly scholarly effort covering the westerns and listing alternate titles, crew, stars and characters played. It has a brief discussion of all the films included and as a bonus it covers all of the Turkish westerns of the period. I reference this book constantly and although written in Italian it is easy to understand and should be on every Spaghetti fans bookshelf.
