What would film be without music? Music conveys all that which images cannot. The importance of a soundtrack can sometimes even transcend that of images and stories, and great directors often build the entire structure of their masterpiece around a score - the themes in Cinema Italia are evidence of this. There have been numerous masterpieces in Italian cinema that have influenced filmmakers around the world and film composers continue to distinguish themselves in this art. Cinema Italia is a tribute to the great Italian cinema which has contributed to raising global awareness of the country and has maintained a tradition of excellence. Equally distinct is the cast of musicians on this album: Rosario Giuliani on sax, Luciano Biondini on the accordion, Enzo Pietropaoli on the double bass and Michele Rabbia on acoustic and electronic drums. The contemporary music point of view on Cinema Italia never betrays the melodies of these unforgettable themes and presents them with a new force and vitality, demonstrating their immortality and constantly surprising the listener with the fresh innovativeness of the proposed versions. Unforgettable themes from unforgettable movies, such as 8 ½ (1962), Once Upon A Time In America (1984) and Nuovo Cinema Paradiso (1988), by the iconic composers Nino Rota and Ennio Morricone. On top of these themes, two original tracks by Rosario Giuliani and Luciano Biondini, from Bianco E Nero (2008) and What Is There What Is Not (2011), confirm the narrative force of these two incredible musicians and composers.
