A delicate and charming soundtrack composed by maestro Armando Trovaioli who has worked among others with directors such as Vittorio de Sica, Marco Vicario, Dino Risi, Luigi Magni and Ettore Scola, which has scored almost the entire filmography. Profumo di donna is one of the 30 titles from the Sugar's collection dedicated to the soundtracks that have made the history of film music. The collection will be released on March 13rd in a completely remastered version and with a new look edition. All the title of the series have been enriched with a text by Marco Muller, movie producer, critic and director of the most important film festival. He affirms: Cinema is the place where music becomes something different, carving for itself a specific role within a whole where it is as important as visual composition, editing , time and movement. Without music cinema would lose one essential element of its nature.Whenever important musicians have worked with important film-directors their strong individual personalities have always struck a balance where great music made a great film stronger and vice versa. These adventurous stories of Italian (and not only Italian) cinema are the subject of this well-thought re-proposition of the CAM catalogue. A selection of its greatest titles offering the opportunity to divert from a concert program of modernist music, or an alternative to light pop, to venture into a new continent just waiting to be (re-)discovered.
