(Almost) everyone know the subgenre of “Spaghetti Western”. For the few ones who don’t know anything about it, a brief introduction is compulsory. Originally coined by the Spanish journalist Alfonso Sánchez; this term denotes a specific field of the Western movies directed by Italian directors. Filmed in Italy or in Spain, the Spaghetti Western movies were very popular during the 60s. Even if they are low-budget products, titles like “A Fistful of Dollars“, “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” and the long “Django” series became part of the collective imagination. Especially in these last years, they’ve grown hugely in popularity mainly thanks to Quentin Tarantino. Indeed both “Django Unchained” and “The Hateful Eight” are two of the best examples of modern Spaghetti-Western movies.
Anyway, the influence of this genre doesn’t stop in the US. In fact, it reached also the Land of the Rising Sun inspiring many movies, anime, and obviously video games.
