Digitmovies release for the first time on CD the complete edition of the Giovanni Fusco's soundtrack for the Peplum film The Goddess of Love (1957) (original title: La Venere Di Cheronea). Fusco (October 10, 1906 Sant'Agata de 'Goti - June 1, 1968 Rome) wrote a symphonic score for orchestra and choir that he entrusted to the masterful conductor, Carlo Savina. His main source of inspiration for this score was surely Iride's beauty (and actress Belinda Lee who interprets her). Maestro Fusco created orchestral passages with a moving love theme which are introduced in the opening credits and then reprised several times throughout the soundtrack and contrasted with a battle theme. Also included is the track in the alternate ending from the French version of the film. For this CD access to the mono master tapes from the recording session see the use of every note recorded. The recovery and preservation of this CD from the golden age is a tribute to the musical art of Giovanni Fusco. Edition of 300.
