Well, the Japanese disc might be a PAL-NTSC conversion whereas the Italian disc would be the original PAL transfer.  I haven't seen the film but there is apparently a scene where Nero has Gastoni walking the streets nude so that would be a place to look for fogging.

I've not seen the film either so I found the scene you mentioned ecc and there's no fogging...

Well just goes to show you. Both kultvideo and videociak list the Italian disc as fullscreen.

Confusing as hell isn't it Alan! DVD.it have a new collector's edition in stock that says 16:9, from the same company listed on Kult Video (Millenium Storm) but with a different cover...

I'll stick with the Japanese DVD for now.

Millennium Storm's website lists it as 16:9 (several of their releases are anamorphic including A QUIET PLACE TO KILL which was also ported for a Japanese release).

Samperi made three great subversive films in the 60's and then went totally commercial. Scandalo is quite an anomally in his 70's work.

I was thinking the same thing, be interesting to see how the English dub from the US VHS matches up with the Japanese DVD...
