Bonus Trivia

.

There have been persistent (but erroneous) rumors that Morricone and composer Nicola Piovani are one and the same. This information has appeared in print several times in sources ranging from the 1981 book-length study of film music "Keeping Score" to a filmography in the August 1989 Premiere by John Clark to "The Encyclopedia of Film". It has been refuted by the usually reliable Film Dope and Fabiano Canosa, the film director of the Public Theater. In 1999, Piovani won an Oscar for composing the score to "La Vita E Bella/Life Is Beautiful" and in press interviews once again addressed the false rumor.
