Rome Against Rome (1964): Soundtrack

Rome Against Rome is an Italian ‘sandals-and-zombies’ film directed by Giuseppe Vari. Its Italian title is ‘Roma contro Roma‘, and it has also been released as War of the Zombies, and Night Star: Goddess of Electra

The soundtrack was created by Roberto Nicolosi, an Italian musician and composer who was born in Genoa in 1914.

Roberto Nicolosi was responsible for many Italian movie soundtracks, and he was most active in the 1950s through to the late 1960s.

The Soundtrack

The soundtrack itself alternates between shorter experimental electronic pieces (slow prolonged tones and eerie sounds and whistles), and sweeping and grand orchestration that is full of bluster, and pounding drums.

The more experimental electronic parts seem to be reserved for the evil characters and the zombies, while the battles and larger set-pieces get the full, and more traditional, orchestral score.
