    As Italian, by the same director, I can’t recommend you enough “LA CASA DALLE FINESTRE CHE RIDONO” aka “House with windows that laughed”, from 1976.
    Pupi Avati is a great director, with registers ranging from sentimental comedy to horror, with a passion for jazz, too

    I was having trouble sleeping, I started watching this and it knocked me right out within a few minutes. Highly recommend it if you have insomnia.
