Who Are Those Composers? ~ Coriolano ‘Lallo’ Gori

Coriolano ‘Lallo’ Gori was born in Cervia, Ravenna on March 7, 1927. Gori graduated in piano, harmony and composition at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan. He entered RAI as a member of its orchestra, then he became the musical director of its office in Rome.

Gori was best known as a composer of scores for films, and composed scores for 88 of them. These included several Spaghetti Westerns, poliziotteschis and thrillers, such as “Primitive Love”, “Massacre Time”, “Dead Men Don't Make Shadows”, “Werewolf Woman” and “The Iron Commissioner”. Gori became the composer of choice for notorious Spaghetti Western director Demofilo Fidani, who re-used Gori’s compositions in many of his films and became one of the most prolific of the Italian composers of the Spaghetti western genre

Gori also composed several pop songs, and three of them entered the competition at the Sanremo Music Festival.
