Italy (Italian: Italia [iˈtaːlja]), officially the Italian Republic (Italian: Repubblica italiana), is a unitary parliamentary republic in Southern Europe. To the north, Italy borders France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia, and is approximately delimited by the Alpine watershed, enclosing the Po Valley and the Venetian Plain. To the south, it consists of the entirety of the Italian Peninsula and the two Mediterranean islands of Sicily and Sardinia, in addition to many smaller islands.

In Inglourious Basterds[]

Lt. Aldo Raine mentioned that he fought in Sicily, before recruiting the Basterds. Italy is seen in the film on Hitler's map from his lair.

Frederick Zoller killed 300 enemy soldiers in a fortified city in Sicily, exploits turned into a film, Nation's Pride.

Aldo, Donny and Omar pose as Bridget von Hammersmark's Italian escort and cameramen during Operation Kino, to gain access to the film premiere and assassinate Hitler, Goebbels, Bormann, Göring and most of the German High Command.


  • Set in "Sicily", the Nation's Pride was shot on Untermarkt and Obermarkt in the old town of Görlitz, about 64 km N-E of Bad Schandau, on the border with Poland.[1][2]
