‣02/03/2018 Maximus Other spots - part I
Continuing this plot: in the very interesting Lucio Mazzi's book "Musica per..." we can read that Maestro scored more commercials (see on p.172 - http://www.marcomioli.it/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Musica_per_Lucio-Mazzi.pdf).
The same information you can find here: http://www.nucci.it/page.asp?ids=4&ida=4 but - what's even more important - in the general catalogue of the Carosello's commercials:
After putting a phrase "Ennio Morricone" we can find more information about already known series of spots called Il Californiano, but not only about it. We have also confirming of the earlier searchings now:
1) connected with Coca-Cola – all directed by Aldo Rossi:
- „I sogni di John Foster” (1966-67) (see also: http://carosellomito.net/serie/i-sogni-di-john-foster/), for ex. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSXTfHl2hSU,
- „Nel Far West” (1968) (see also: http://carosellomito.net/serie/nel-far-west/)
But we can’t forgive to mention about the series „Tutto va meglio” (1969) – for ex.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjAiDPS6WFI. Carosello’s catalogue give u san information about Franco Godi as the composer, but…
2) REX Zanussi (1971-73) – for ex. a dishwasher – without any title, directed by Giulio Paradisi; reused music from Indagine…
3) connected with Cinzano (Cinzano Soda) – „Ritorni” series (1972-74); directed by Ezio Perardi; the rumours are about music from I Clan dei Siciliani (1969), but – it’s very possible – with a slightly different version – definitely it needs more searching;
end of part I

‣02/03/2018 Maximus Other spots - part II
4) Confezioni Cori (1968-1972) – precisely: „Confezioni femminili Cori”; directed by L. Emmer
- „Parigi è sempre Parigi” – 21 different episodes (1968-1972) (see: http://carosellomito.net/serie/parigi-e-sempre-parigi/). Episode called „Fontane” is the same as „Acqua” so we have 21 parts not 22 (all episodes are on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Cori+-+Parigi+e+sempre+Parigi). There’s music from our Maestro to classical pieces.
5) Ignis (1972-1976) – directed by L. Emmer again, but also reused from I crudeli (music reused from I crudeli, other music is by F. Liszt-Hungarian Rhapsody) - Ignis was once very famous series better known as Gli Incontentabili (http://carosellomito.net/serie/gli-incontentabili/; also see for. ex.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vVT0I-7Bv4; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pISgKv3U34)
6) Detersivo All (1972) – Unilit; directed by mentioned already Giulio Paradisi
- „La donna oggi” (see also: http://carosellomito.net/serie/la-donna-oggi-unilit/).
7) [new!] caramelle Millefrutta; directed by L. Emmer (and also Elah like in il Californiano case)
- „Gli egoisti” (1971)
8) Salvarani (ferniture); directed by Roberto Gavioli
- „Walter Molino e le sue tavole” (1972) – see also: http://carosellomito.net/serie/walter-molino-e-le-sue-tavole/prime-gite-sulla-neve/. As I wrote earlier: I think we can also add this commercial with (unfortunately) reused music from L’Avventuriero (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgpRdij2Mh0 – 44:37-47:04, music from 46:29 till the end).
The page http://www.archiviocinemaindustriale.it/cataloghi/ gave us also another one interesting catalogue about the industrial cinema: http://www.archiviocinemaindustriale.it/index.php/cataloghi/catalogo-cinema/consultazione
Last time I wrote about Garigliano’s movies but despite the fact that there are already known titles, you can find also something new like the film Pittura e realtà from 1993 (dir. Alberto Lardani). It needs more searching if the music is original or only reused.

Thanks Maximus for all these searches. For me, the only strong candidate (almost a certainty even) amongst the ones where some music can be heard is Cori.
Morricone is probably only associated to Coca-Cola because of the reused music. Tutti va meglio is not morriconian to my ears.

Regarding the documentary Pittura e realtà, it is likely to reuse existing music. But indeed more investigations are needed.
