UNESCO recently declared that the Neapolitan dialect should be considered a language on its own. Spoken across Italy, Neapolitan is most dominant in basso Lazio, Abruzzo and Molise, Puglia and Calabria. Its origins go as far back as the time of Pompei.

During the late 1970s and early 1980s, Italian cinema became internationally synonymous with violent horror films.
