But good publicity would be nothing without captivating music to accompany it … However, on this occasion, Dolce & Gabbana put the dishes in the big ones and called on one of the most famous composers: the iconic Ennio Morricone. The Oscar-winning composer directed the soundtrack for Dolce & Gabbana’s K fragrance campaign, while teaming up with director and photographer Mariano Vivanco.
