Where do I find Italian SF on DVD PDQ? I will need them dubbed in english or with subtitles. Also, this is a new area of SF to me, who does what?

In my opinion Italian SF begins and ends with Druuna.

I think Barbarella is still streaming on Netflix… and maybe Starcrash as well as Planet Of The Vampires and Battle Of The Worlds.
I think The Green Slime and Wild, Wild Planet qualify as well… though they might be Spanish.
Some of those are on YouTube.
I'd look at Spanish scifi as well because I think there is a lot of cross-breeding of styles there (I know there is for horror films).

What are you doing with Italian Scifi?
The visual style and bizarre storylines are what appeal to me… there's generally a bit more sex as well. Actually, Lost In Space had a lot of the same feel to it (minus the sex).

All three are on YouTube. Green Slime was for months, but got nuked recently, and it's Japanese anyway. You can also find Snow Devils there without much effort one of the other Gamma-One films.

The Green Slime doesn't strike me as being overtly Japanese. Despite being made in Japan by a Japanese director and cinematographer it shares a chunk of DNA with the Gamma I movies as well (same producers, writers, space station model)… so I always lump it in with those.

Planet On The Prowl is one I'd particularly like to see since I only saw it once upon a time as a kid.

What are the Gamma 1 movies. I own Barbarella, Green Slime and Planet of the Vampires. I want to buy more for my collection.

These sites give a bit of an overview of the Gamma I series:
