SPAGHETTI WESTERN: COLTS, SLAPS AND BEANIES
The inspiration for great contemporary directors
The myth of the cowboy was born in the American studios, but when we talk about Westerns, one name keeps coming up: Sergio Leone, the great architect of the so-called "spaghetti" Western because it was made in Italy.
This genre, which was initially intended to be purely mercantile by shooting low-cost imitations of American Westerns, allowed the emergence of new talents.
The spaghetti western became a true genre thanks to Leone, Corbucci, Solima, and the music of Ennio Morricone. It will then, in turn, influence international cinema, notably by inspiring great contemporary directors such as Quentin Tarantino.
