What year does the movie CINEMA PARADISO take place in when Salvatore is a child?

Was it around 1944? Or earlier or later. I don't mean when he is a teenager. I want to know what year(s) the movie Cinema Paradiso takes place in when Salvatore is a little boy learning from Alfredo.

I just bought the movie and need to know when, specifically, the movie takes place because that is how I organize my DVD collection.

    I don't recall the year but it was immediately after WW2 since his father died in the war and they were posting lists of casualties in the town. So I would think it was 1945 or 46.
