    I prefer “Paisan” myself.

    Also, I think it’s worth mentioning Luchino Visconti, who was absolutely integral to Neorealism and is often considered to have made the first Neorealist film (“Ossessione”).

      Oh, of course. I could have easily mentioned about half a dozen other directors who were essential to Neorealism, but I had to keep things brief.
