There's also a [[UsefulNotes/FascistItaly dark side]] to this idyllic country: the time-warped post-war black-and-white Italy that somehow survived till today, directly from neo-realistic movies. It's a dangerous and inhospitable country mostly populated of black clad old women that speak quietly and make emphatic gestures, act as superstitious yet religious fanatics, and still don't own a TV set or a vehicle. The only intelligible words these creatures seem to be able to communicate is some distorted provincial dialect like "goomba", and they still claim to vote for Mussolini ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alessandra_Mussolini Well, you still can...]]). The remaining population of dark Italy is composed of dark skinned and dark haired (almost Indian looking) scoundrels, good-for-nothing or whores.

** An Italian tour bus in had Mario from ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' mocking Homer. Then an angry Homer starts throwing trash cans at him, and you can pretty much guess [[VideoGame/DonkeyKong where it goes from there]].

* With his very large family, his love for wine and opera, women swooning all over him, and oh yes, his outrageous accent, Wrestling/{{WWE}} wrestler Santino Marella seems to hail from this version of Italy. Of course, since his FaceHeelTurn, he only ''thinks'' women swoon over him. He's much funnier this way.

* Angel and Spike go to Rome in a late episode of ''Series/{{Angel}}''; everyone they run into has a comical accent (including the demons) and tends to be [[LargeHam rather overstated]].

* Completely {{Averted}} in ''WesternAnimation/LupinIIITheItalianAdventure''. After all, [[GermansLoveDavidHasseldorf given how popular the franchise is in Italy (to the point it started being broadcast there before Japan)]] and having an Italian network involved in the production, [[JustifiedTrope would you have actually expected anything else but an accurate Italy?]]
