During research for my unknown Italian coming-of-age movie I found this mini series (6 episodes) on YouTube. Unfortunately half of them have been deleted. But still many boys in very interesting sailor suits. I have seen many movies featuring sailor suits but this is maybe the one with the most boys in different sailor suits. Some boys are handsome. Interesting sailor collars. Makes rating 10. I can’t show all of them. There are white, light blue, medium blue, dark blue and other sailor collars. With or without stripes, 2, 3 or more stripes. Different styles of suits, collars and dickeys and also caps and straw hats.
Pic 1: note the boy on the right in a completetly white sailor collar without stripes on the right. There are also at least 2 others in white collar with stripes. The boy in the dark blue long suit is the same as on the last pic below. Short white collar flap on the rear with many thicker angled blue stripes. Matching stripes on the dickey.
Pic 2 showing a blue collar with a thicker stripe on the edge and 2 thinner stripes. Pic 3 showing a blue grey combination. Also another boy in an interesting suit and collar. Pic 4 is a white buttoned suit jacket and another rare light blue rectangled collar.
Famous novel “Dagli Appennini alle Ande” by Edmondo De Amicis. English title: Heart. There are around 20 more movies and series about this plot including animated series. I only remember the 1989 series starring Umberto Caglini but have to check the others.
An update with 2 more pics also showing the front of pic 1 and some hats
