In 1970 Ennio Morricone was asked to compose a piece intended to commemorate the centenary of Rome as capital of unified Italy since 1870. Morricone then invited Pasolini to express in verse his thoughts about the history of Rome.

In the "Meditazione orale" piece (1970) Pasolini recites his own verses on top of Morricone's atonal music from UN UOMO A METÀ (1966). – About the soundtrack: link
