    Italians were never Nazis.  That's a German name. They were Fascists during World War II and for some years earlier, though not all bought into Fascism.  Both Nazism and Fascism were reactionary, right-wing ideologies.  Nazism was just a form of Fascism under another name.

    The ancient Romans were no more ruthless than other peoples alive at the time and for some centuries thereafter. It is, however, unlikely that they were quite as brutal and sadistic as depicted in that film.  On the whole, they preferred to manage things like executions with clinical efficiency and dispatch, though Pontius Pilate was a very problematic official, that's worth noting.  He appalled even his superiors back in Rome and ended up being recalled.

    There are more films where Italians are gangsters than Nazis but there are also films where they are lovers or one of the best films is an Italian film where it shows a poor man struggling to get by a great film, The bicycle Thief.

    No, even during WWII some were Facists; they aren't nazis.

    Hitler did refer to them as the First Reich and his Germany the Third Reich.  That movie predates the time, but probably a technicality in that the Nazis had to keep the Christians happy.

    No.  I never bothered to see that gore-fest film

  • do you really think everybody in reality is the same as in a movie?,  that's the last place i look for confirmations of reality,  even when a film is "fact based"  or based on true events  etc...a movie is from the perspective of the producer and director, and not neccassarily what someone would experience...
