Contrary to its appearance, this book was constructed from a distance, with Valentino contributing to give names and stories to many of the villagers. Valentino was an essential go-between, as he spoke English, which he had learned as a prisoner of war in Nevada and Ohio, and knew every single person in Luzzara. Ironically, he was perceived as a potential spy, possibly American or Russian, because of his role of native informant for Strand, an American Communist in exile.
The hypothesis that Valentino stood in front of his mother and brothers, and possibly engaged with them, while Strand orchestrated this shot, is quite plausible, and further justifies the immense pride of this portrait — a timeless image of endurance, set apart from existing political tensions and intrinsic war losses. The desire to ground ones creative work in a native landscape was intrinsic to postwar literary life, as already suggested. With Un Paese , Zavattini had the opportunity of revisiting an earlier project; in , as a young journalist, he had featured Luzzara in a special issue of the local newspaper Gazzetta di Parma with the stories he had gathered locally.
The column was successful, accounting for 80 per cent of sales of Epoca.

Rossellini was familiar with the quiet scenery around Luzzara as the last episode of his film was shot by the Po Delta. Nonetheless, the collaboration with Zavattini did not succeed, as Rossellini focused on a new film, Voyage in Italy , where Ingrid Bergman per formed an existential, and no longer neorealist, kind of journey. For example, when The Bicycle Thief was relaunched, after a rather disappointing release, the screening was heavily supported and publicized by the PCI.
Excerpts from Un Paese were included in Cinema Nuovo , as a further indication of the vitality of neorealism in photography, and as an example to follow.

Most of these essays were depressing, showing social tensions, areas of deprivation, and the still visible wounds of war. These records were part of a larger anthropological reconnaissance under the scientific guidance of Ernesto De Martino, who conducted a study of the indigenous culture of southern peasants collaborating also with Franco Pinna. Zavattini Jr. Unable to gain this favour with the press, left-wing intellectuals commented:.
His text in Un Paese allowed problems and frustrations to emerge. Young women expressed the wish not to get married to a farmer, and children asked to go to school instead of minding the geese. If cinema were in crisis, as Aristarco and Zavattini well understood, the photobook suggested a potential new vehicle to voice social concerns. As for the novelty of a photobook, questions arose about its authorship, and how to evaluate it in regard to words and pictures.
Paradoxically, if the photobook seemed a reasonable compromise for a film industry that was finding it increasingly difficult to produce socially engaged works, most intellectuals did not seem to grasp, nor embrace, this new format. The high cost of production, an essential condition for Strand, rendered its marketing difficult. One thousand copies were printed but not many were sold, discouraging the publisher from adding new titles to the series. The attempts to translate Un Paese to French and English also failed.
