  • IL POSTO Extended Scene

    This scene was originally shot to continue the moment in IL POSTO when Domenico spots Magalì leaving work under the umbrella of another male coworker. Director Ermanno Olmi chose to remove the scene because he felt it lengthened the film unnecessarily.

  • Reflecting Reality

    Conducted in 2002, this interview features IL POSTO writer-director Ermanno Olmi reminiscing about the film and his career. Film critic (and occasional Olmi collaborator) Tullio Kezich also offers his thoughts.

  • La cotta

    Broadcast on RAI television in 1967, this charming featurette about a teenage boy’s first crush on a girl reveals director Ermanno Olmi’s love and respect for the dilemmas of everyday people, along with an early example of the kind of stylistic and narrative experimentation seen in his later work.
