Daniele Luppi on Ennio Morricone

I don't see any other human being matching the grandeur of Ennio's genius, but I'm like many other people [in] appreciating his talents. They resonate very much with me because I grew up with that stuff, and other people's works like Travaoili and Pierro Piccoli. They all have a capability of reaching into my heart and brain. Ennio is the best product to have ever come out of Italy. What a guy.
