Nino Rota

December 3, 1911 - April 10, 1979
born in Milan, Italy, composed during the Modern period
Nino Rota (1911-1979) was an Italian composer, best known for his film music. Rota began his career with an oratorio at age 12, and much of his attention in his student years was devoted to opera. Rota scored his first film in 1944, Castellani's Zazà, and subsequently composed music for such directors as Luchino Visconti, Franco Zeffirelli, and King Vidor, among many others. But his three-decade association with Federico Fellini yielded 80 scores, including La Strada, La Dolce Vita, and Amarcord, and Rota's music for Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather became some of his best-known work. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

I actually met the person who wrote the lyric accompanimen t to this piece. I was doing my high school senior internship at an oral surgeon's office and he was one of the patients and spoke to me about his times as a music writer since he also wrote "Spanish Eyes" for Willie Nelson.
