An Index of Metals” (2003) on kahtlemata üks silmapaistvamaid audiovisuaalseid teoseid klassikalise nüüdismuusika repertuaaris, mida on esitatud üle kogu maailma rohkem kui 50 korda. See on helilooja Fausto Romitelli viimane teos, mis kirjutatud 19 aastat tagasi veidi enne tema surma. Koos helilooja ja videokunstniku Paolo Pachini ning poetess Kenka Lekovitšiga lõid nad ambitsioonika video-ooperi sopranile, 11-liikmelisele instrumentaalansamblile, elektroonikale ja videole. Helilooja on lähtunud helist kui sepistatavast materjalist: poorsus, läige, tihedus, elastsus on omadused, mis saavad elektroakustilises töötluses või instrumendikõlades oma väljenduse.
