with Rosario Giuliani Quartet


What would films be without music? Music is able to convey what images cannot. The importance of a soundtrack can sometimes even transcend images and stories. Great movie directors often build the entire structure of their masterpieces around a score.

Cinema Italia is a tribute to Italian cinema and its soundtracks, which have contributed to raise global awareness of Italy’s culture.

For this concert, acclaimed saxophonist Rosario Giuliani and his quartet will revisit, in a unique jazz style, unforgettable themes by Nino Rota and Ennio Morricone, composed for unforgettable movies such as Federico Fellini’s 8 e mezzo, Sergio Leone’s Once Upon A Time in America and Giuseppe Tornatore’s Nuovo Cinema Paradiso.

Rosario Giuliani will be accompanied on stage by Luciano Biondini at the accordion, Enzo Pietropaoli at the double bass and Michele Rabbia at acoustic and electronic drums.
