Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino will be honoured with a lifetime achievement award at the International Rome Film Festival.
The 49-year-old will be awarded ahead of the European premiere of his new film Django Unchained in Italy next month.
Composer Ennio Morricone, who worked with the director on the movie, will present Tarantino with his latest accolade, reports contactmusic.com.
The movie is inspired by Sergio Corbucci's 1966 spaghetti western Django, which starred Franco Nero.
Nero has a small role in Tarantino's Django Unchained as well.
