> During today’s day, 6 July 2020, the great Ennio Morricone , legendary composer of unforgettable and timeless soundtracks, died at the age of 91.
I am in fact dozens (not to say hundreds) of the music composed by the master that will echo forever in the common imagination, especially those related to the strand of Sergio Leone’s spaghetti western .
they will know very well that a saga that has always been inspired by the films with Clint Eastwood in the role of the stranger without name is obviously that of Red Dead Redemption , by Rockstar Games .
Now, via Twitter, the Grande R wanted to pay homage to Maestro Morricone with a single piece, that is, a song taken from the film “… E Per Tetto Un Cielo Di Stelle em> “, released in 1968 and directed by Giulio Petroni, heard in the first chapter of the series (ie Red Dead Revolver ).

We remember in any case that this morning Hideo Kojima also wanted to pay homage to Ennio Morricone, given that the game designer and director Japanese had used a song in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (more specifically the track “Here’s to You”) .
We remember that Morricone’s career is very long, thanks to some collaborations that have made the history of film music, such as the one with Sergio Leone and Giuseppe Tornatore.
In 2007 the artist won the honorary Oscar for his career, while in 2016 he withdrew the statuette for The Hateful Eight , a film directed by Quentin Tarantino. Other soundtracks that entered the Olympus of cinema are For a Fistful of Dollars, Mission , Once Upon a Time in America and Nuovo Cinema Paradiso.
The funeral of the great Ennio Morricone will be held in private form in respect of the humility that has always inspired his existence and that of his affections more expensive, as specified in your written will.
