| This song is NOT connected to Ennio Morricone in any way.
Lyrics: Paolina Morrione – Music: Matteo Marletta – Orchestrator: Marcello Giombini
The Ennio Morricone Musicography (1990) had little to go on when it said: "As composer is mentioned 'Morrione', but this is probably a misprint for Morricone." (EMM, page 23)
The assumption was based on the spelling similarity between Morrione and Morricone, but also on the sequencing of the author names printed on the vinyl single.
Normally the surname of the lyricist is listed first, followed by the surname of the composer (Morrione/Marletta).
Instead, the label of the 45 reads 'Marletta/Morrione', implying that Marletta wrote the lyrics and Morrione the music.
