Peter, my "old knowledge" preference is Fuji Reala 100. Simply the 
best color neg film. See Ctein's reviews in the last two issues of 
Photo Techniques. I have shot a LOT of Reala 100 in 120, 220, and 
35mm all over the world. I made many 16X20's from 35mm that at a 
normal viewing distance compete very well with the medium format 
prints. Also, when Reala was not available, I have shot a lot of 
plain old Kodak Gold 100. That stuff can go to 16X20 too. If you go 
to Italy is the sunny season, 100 speed is all you need. If it's not 
sunny, why go to Italy?
