‣17/07/2021 Bob Hendrikx Notes on Ornella Vanoni: ATTENTO A TE (1962) (Part 1)
The "Attento a te" version sung by Ornella Vanoni seems to have been orchestrated by Enrico Polito, not Ennio Morricone.

It is not uncommon for the vinyl single version to come from Morricone and the LP version from someone else, but in this case both songs are identical, yet the former is attributed to Ennio Morricone and the latter to Enrico Polito.
Morricone is only credited on the 1962 single, while Polito (for the same version) is credited on all other releases.
