What does not actually sounds so bad at all turns out to be incredibly mediocre because that is The Monster of Florence is. Putting the fact the facts are being mixed with fiction aside, the result could have been so much better. The biggest problem is the lack of suspense. By the way, the score differs every now and then but that does not make any difference whatsoever.

When Giulia is gone, Andreas is sitting on the chair. The subsequent flashbacks differ.
When Andreas puts paper in the typewriter, the Italian Original Version transitions to a further flashback. In the International Theatrical Version on the hand, Andreas starts writing. Then a small close-up of the typewriter.
Here, the International Theatrical Version contains an additional shot of the couple in the car. In addition to that, the following shot of them starts earlier.
The killer fires off a shot and the bullet hits its target (exterior shot of the car, the bullet goes through the window). And here is the next alteration: After the shot of the broken window, the Italian Original Version fades to black plus there is a female scream when the screen is black.
In the International Theatrical Version, the killer fires off further shots - scream of the victim included. The woman makes an attempt to escape, the killer chases her around the car and fires off more shots. He then tosses the purse and drags the body away. Then a shot of the dead guy behind the wheel, followed by the killer mutilating the woman: Starting with touching and cutting her blouse open, he then uses the knife on her private parts while one can see the woman's face. Last but not least, the killer takes care of the dead guy in the car.
