What's the opening music in Fellini's And the Ship Sails On? I'm not referring to the musical revue of Verdi's Forza del Destino but the piano number (sounded like a sonata/marche funebre) when the diva's ashes were being carried out of the funeral carriage to the ship. This music has mystified me for the longest.

It was Debussy's famous piano piece "Clair de lune", from some suite I unfortunately cannot remember the name of... but it shouldn't be hard to find anyway.

Oh, I know about Debussy's "Claire de Lune". I was asking about the very first music played in the opening scene when the late diva's aunt was marching towards the ship with the ashes. Anyway, could that be part of a the Claire de Lune suite? Thanks.
