QUESTO SI CHE E' AMORE (LAST TOUCH OF LOVE) was directed in 1978 by Filippo Ottoni and starred Christopher George, Gay Hamilton, Laura Trotter and Sven Valsecchi. It tells the story of a terminally-ill young boy who is forced to live in a hospital and of his gesture of love that will bring his parents together again at the cost of his own life.
A movie in the tear-jerker genre—which was very popular at the time—the score was composed by a Maestro very dear to Beat Records: Stelvio Cipriani, who created a score with deep emotional impact. Great main titles with disco music sonorities and a lengthy, moving, melodic score that included a song recorded exclusively for the movie by Sven Valsecchi, who played the ill-fated young protagonist. The status quo is easily surpassed by the monumental and iconic Roman composer Stelvio Cipriani.
The CD is released in a jewel case, with mastering and liner notes (in Italian and English) by Claudio Fuiano and graphic design by Alessio Iannuzzi. Limited edition of 500 copies.
