Il Mestiere delle armi (2001) - La battaglia

(English language title the Profession of arms.)
Steve Stanley was hosting a debate on Facebook about films you can stand repeat viewings of and Bruno Mugnai (who is a great military artist) recommended this one. So I checked it out and it looks great. He says 'the movie on the death of Giovanni de' Medici, known as Giovanni of the Black Bands in 1526. It Is very realistic and well directed. Filmed in Bulgaria in order to represent the Italian countryside in early 16th century'. If you want to see it it's in parts in YouTube.
 The history of the first victim of modern artillery and its moving agony, amidst conspiracies and betrayals of the powerful. Life and death of Giovanni De' Medici, a young brave captain in the war of Charles V against the Pope, in the first half of 1500.IMDB
