Italian film composer Ennio Morricone will present Tarantino with the honor at a gala screening of his latest film Jan. 4, the film's European premiere, The Hollywood Reporter said Friday.

The film festival concluded Nov. 17, but artistic director Marco Mueller had promised that Rome would play some role in the film, which is an homage to the spaghetti Western.

"Django Unchained" wasn't finished in time for a festival screening.

"Quentin Tarantino's vision has radically influenced our collective imagery over the past 20 years," Mueller said. "Tarantino is a profoundly American yet very European filmmaker, because the relationship he has established with cinema and its history is as analytical as it is passionate."
