DescriptionIl fuoco - translated "The Fire", Il fuoco compiles music for Giovanni Pastrone's silent movie of the same name. Released in 1915, the movie is considered to a masterpiece of early 20th century italian cinema and the result of Pastrone's collaboration with Gabriele D'Annunzio. The movie is divided into three chapters, representing different moments of a morbid, yet passionate love story: la favilla (the spark), la fiamma (the flame) and la cenere (the ash). In October 2006, the "Museo Nazionale Del Cinema" in Turin commissioned the band to compose and perform a new soundtrack for the movie. After an incredible success in one live show, the band decided to turn the soundtrack into a proper album, taking the music composed for the film several steps further and adding new ideas. "Il fuoco" is Giardini di Mirò's most ambitious work to date.
