Not only do Italians know how to create lush film scores on the themes of love, lust and murder, they know how to live the art too! During the 1950s, Piero Piccioni was a prime suspect in the murder of a young girl, Wilma Montesi. It was the first court case to lift the lid and take a peek at the corruption, wealth and sex at the top of Italian society and the public lapped up the tabloid headlines and paparazzi pictures. Piccioni was cleared of all charges and the case remains unsolved.
You can hear it all here in Piccioni's 1964 soundtrack, 3 Notti d'Amore. Moving from sensuous sax and relaxed rhythms to tense strings and jumpy horns. It goes through the emotions like only an Italian could.
