The movie genre of crime stories "Italian style", later known as "Poliziottesco", was a mirror of what was actually happening in Italy during the 70s. Robberies, kidnappings, extortions and prostitution were common in those days... criminals were thriving and starting to get organized into gangs. These stories inspired filmmakers like Stelvio Massi, Enzo Castellari, Bruno Corbucci and others, true masters of the medium who managed to create realistic, Violent and sometimes extremely moving pictures even if often restricted by limited budgets. The "Poliziottesco" genre was interpreting a changing country and featured actors that later became true cinema icons thanks to the appreciation of the public (while they didn't receive the same kind of praise from the critics). The Soundtracks were assigned to great composers whose contribution to the genre helped them gain in fame and world wide recognition. Given this kind of background, "Italia Violenta" bears an important responsibility: To make people relive the fascination of the sounds and atmospheres of a period of Italian history that has never been forgotten and very often missed. Availalble in a special De-luxe box containing the CD and a set of collector's postcards with the original movie posters and details on the film (on the one side the card is in Italian and on the other in English). A must for all collectors!!! this is the first volume of a series which is composed of 3 volumes which will be released in the next few months. music by Piero Piccioni, Stelvio Cipriani, Enrico Simonetti, Riz Ortolani, Berto Pisano, I Fratelli de Angelis, Giampaolo Chiti, Franco Micalizzi, Gianni Ferrio, Luis Bacalov, Ennio Morricone for films starring Franco Nero, Tomas Milian, Franco Gasparri etc..
