Goofs

Continuity 

When Gelsomina leaves Zampanò, she walks by the road and sits down on the roadside near a small group of trees (about 4-5 m away). When the trio of musicians marches past, she appears to have moved back down the road as the height and appearance of the roadside behind her have changed and it takes the musicians, with Gelsomina following, some time to reach the point where the trees are.

The fire at the building in the mountains changes four times as Zampanò leaves Gelsomina. When he removes the tripod, it is ashes with one or two charcoal sticks, the next times there are more sticks, the next shot shows a large pile of sticks and the last shot of the fire shows it roaring with flames.

The shadows of the building and the characters in the scene at the building in the mountains changes from shot to shot and are inconsistent. For example, initially the shadows are from the left of screen from the vehicle to the building. When Gelsomina climbs out of the vehicle, her shadow goes in the opposite direction.
