Oscar-winning Morricone heads Rome film festival jury
Morricone, 82, who started out as a jazz trumpeter, has also worked with celebrated directors Brian De Palma and Giuseppe Tornatore and has received two Grammy Awards and two Golden Globes in a career spanning half a century.
The Rome festival, which runs from October 27 to November 4, is a relatively new addition to the film festival scene starting out in 2006.
Organizers said in a statement that the jury would include Roberto Bolle, a ballet star and lead dancer at the Teatro della Scala in Milan.
