‣22/11/2019 Bob Hendrikx Notes on Alberto Sordi: NINNA NANNA PER UN NEGRETTO (1961)
Ennio Morricone:
"In Rome, the apprentices, who orchestrated and at times recomposed all the music that ended up in the film based on the composer's sketches, were called 'negroes'. And, yes, I carried out these tasks for several years, starting in 1955 with Giovanni Fusco who wrote the music for GLI SBANDATI. Another composer I collaborated with was Cicognini, who scored IL GIUDIZIO UNIVERSALE (1961). I orchestrated the lullaby sung by Alberto Sordi." (In His Own Words, page 17)

Alas, Morricone's name does not appear on any of the records on which "Ninna nanna per un negretto" was released.
