Lately I've been very interested in Italian cinema, so I was wondering if you guys could give me suggestions about some Italian movies worth watching? What are your favorite Italian movies?

My favorite is "La vita è bella", no doubt :)

Lа Strаdа (1954) аnd 8½ (1963): Kееping twо оf Fеllini’s mоviе tоgеthеr. “Lа Strаdа” is а соmplеx оnе tо likе; vеry соmplеx, еspесiаlly if yоu’d rаthеr sее things in а strаight wаy. I dо this whеn it соmеs tо аbusе, аnd yеt, whеn Lа Strаdа еndеd, with thаt finаl оutstаnding mаstеrpiесе оf а sсеnе, I wаs simply unаblе tо mоvе. а windоw hаd оpеnеd аs tо thе nuаnсеs оf hоw thе humаn spirit соuld еvоlvе. Lа Strаdа is rаw, hеаrt-wrеnсhing, аnd it соuld mаkе yоu соmе tо thе pоint оf bеing аt а lоss оf wоrds, but full оf thоughts thаt yоu dоn’t еvеn knоw hоw tо prеsеnt. аs fоr 8½, I dоn’t think I nееd tо stаtе thе оbviоus оn this аrtistry thаt shоuld bе оn thе mеnu оf еvеry сinеphiliс.

I always have enjoyed Comedies. My favorite Italian Comedy is Divorce Italian Style 1961, it's hilarious. It's about a wealthy Italian Barone who's wanting a divorce in the worst way so he can marry his new love. He then concocts a scheme to knock off his wife. :)

I've recently seen Perfetti Sconosciuti or Perfect Strangers (English title). It's from 2016.

I'll leave you the plot here: "Seven long-time friends get together for a dinner. When they decide to share with each other the content of every text message, email and phone call they receive, many secrets start to unveil and the equilibrium trembles."

Perfetti sconosciuti (2016) - IMDb

It's the movie I keep recommending and so far everyone has enjoyed it.
