Piero Umiliani


Piero Umiliani (17 July 1926, Florence, Tuscany – 14 February 2001, Rome) was an Italian composer of film scores.

He wrote music for a number of films in the 1960s and 1970s that helped develop the style of the typical European jazz influenced film soundtrack. Like many of his Italian colleagues at that time, he composed the scores for many exploitation films, covering genres such as Spaghetti Westerns, Eurospy, Giallo, and softcore sex films (Son of Django, Orgasmo, Death Knocks Twice, Five Dolls for an August Moon , Baba Yaga, The Slave and Sex Pot).

His hit tune Mah-Ná Mah-Ná was written for a Swedish documentary, but became internationally popular when it was used by the Muppets on Sesame Street. His composition Crepuscolo Sul Mare was later used in Ocean's Twelve.
