Ennio Morricone / Morricone playing on T.V., Xmas eve
« on: December 25, 2004, 01:03:32 PM »
Hi to everyone, it's long time I hadn't come to this web board, but tonight I want to let you know one thing...
Ennio Morricone has just made an appearance as a guest on the italian news show, TG2, along with music composer Nicola Piovani.
He was asked to play something on the piano and he made "something that people likes and knows well" (in his own words): Deborah's theme.
He played, lot of sentiment, very moving, I was moved, even the piano was moved but... after the performance HE was very very moved...

I love that guy

Once Upon A Time In America / Has anybody here read THE HOOD?
« on: April 18, 2003, 01:04:52 AM »
I'd like to know opinions about this book; I recently found a copy - with a preface by Sergio Leone - and read it, and although it is not a great book I found it funny.
Has anybody read it?

General Discussion / LEONE UNCULTURED?
« on: February 13, 2003, 12:22:24 PM »
From the great biography of C. Frayling one can get the conviction  that, at least, some people who knew Leone very well thinks or thought that he was poorly cultured. Screenplayer Vincenzoni is among them, but I seem to recall that he was not the only one.
This was one of the surprises of the biography to me because none of the material of any kind I read about Leone mentioned that. But I have two interviews of the late 1988 and recently I got the preface to the italian edition of "The Hoods (in Italy "Mano armata", Longanesi 1983) and they are enough sophisticated not to ascribe them to an uncultured man. I know that professional writers can have blunt, correct or even create the prose, but the concepts are undoubtedly his... so I begin to think that, as many others, Vincenzoni is more unfair that true.
What do you think?

Sergio Leone News / SERGIO'S INTERVIEWS, texts and links
« on: February 05, 2003, 04:19:24 AM »
I think it would be a good thing if anyone who finds a link or something like an interview would put the text or link in here.
I begin with this:,5271,939-20,00.html

It's a transcript of a lesson Leone did in 1988 meeting students of the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia. The interview is in italian but if there's someone interested in a translation can e-mail me... so you can exploit the fact that I'm italian  ;) ; however, there are some videos of that lesson.

I have also another interview, september 1988 at the Venice Festival; Leone was interviewed by a collaborator of an italian musical fanzine, and was published there. I will put it in here shortly.

Bye and bye
