The last words of Ennio Morricone

In the interview, signed by Joseph Fantasia, Ennio Morricone revealed her concerns by returning at the same time calm and tips on how to deal with the pandemic coronavirus:

In the past few days, my wife and I were very worried for one of my children has been good, but now he is better and we are relieved.

The criticism to the flash mob from the balconies

Did not appreciate the flash mobs that were handled by the balconies throughout Italy in full lockdown, and finding them inadequate for the moment. Recognizing that gesture, a way to scare away the ghosts, to provide hope and encourage the sharing, Ennio Morricone, however, had asked for respect for the many lives lost:

I wonder what they think of all those people in those moments: according to me they think only of themselves.
