Trivia

Rota uses the opening fanfare of Federico Fellini's Il Bidone (1955) in the score of this 1958 motion picture. This confirms music critic Dinko Fabris' opinion about Rota's frequent citations of his own music and other composers' models, when he writes that "in the end, self-citation is the stylistic figure that always and unmistakably identifies a composer."
