Ennio Morricone Te Be Feted By Los Angeles Italia Film Fashion and Art Festival

Morricone expected to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

ROME – Ennio Morricone will be feted by the 11th Los Angeles-Italia Film Fashion and Art Festival, the annual pre-Oscars event comprising movies and music and celebrating showbiz ties between Italy and Hollywood, which will run Feb. 21-27 at the Hollywood and Highland Center.

The venerable Italian composer, whose long list of credits includes scores for “Once upon a time in the West,” “Bugsby,” and “The Mission” received an Honorary Lifetime Achievement Oscar in 2007. He is a Golden Globes nominee this year for composing the original score for Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” and is considered a possible contender for additional accolades, including a possible Oscar nomination. Morricone is also a candidate for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Los Angeles-Italia is a sister event to two Italian fests, Capri-Hollywood and Ischia Global, all run by Italo journo Pascal Vicedomini.

Vicedomini’s Capri in the World Institute, in collaboration with the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, has announced it is positioning Morricone for his own star on the Walk of Fame, where he is expected to join fellow Italian artists Bernardo Bertolucci and Andrea Bocellli, Vicedomini said. “Morricone is a true legend in America – an icon of Italian culture,” enthused Vicedomini in a statement. “

“LA, Italia, which highlights the Italian film and music industries, is eager to celebrate him in the year of his collaboration with Tarantino and in the name of the great Sergio Leone,” he added.
