Sciuscià was born from the idea of telling an Italian piece of history through music: the cinema of the second half of 20th century, in particular of the neo-realist trend, which describes and helps to shape the average Italian person identity. Actors and directors as Totò, Alberto Sordi, Aldo Fabrizi or Mario Monicelli highlight the Italian lacks and inconsistencies in the postwar period, suggesting a new possible horizon. The music is not only an appendix, but represents one of the main supporting structures of these movies, and the partnership between director and composer is crucial for the final result of the work. So couples like De Sica/Cicognini, Fellini/Rota, Fusco/Antonioni become precious masterpieces of a cinema that has gone down the history. For example it would be impossible to think about final scene without Nino Rota’s march, or about Aldo Fabrizi pursuit in Guardie e Ladri without reminding you of the Alessandro Cicognini’s acrobatic music. Often watching one of these scenes you even do not take notice of the music, but this is the actual beauty! Music is a part of the scene, and if you ever accidentally listen to it in other contexts, it would remind you of something familiar, like a memory that now is part of your identity.
