The choreographer and television and theater director Gino Landi has died: he was 89 years old. Discovered by Erminio Macario, Landi, born Luigi Gregori, born in Milan on 2 August 1933, worked in cinema, theater and TV, becoming one of the most successful television and theater directors on the national and international scene, collaborating with Nino Rota , Ennio Flaiano, Federico Fellini and many others. We owe him the television direction of some editions of the Sanremo Festival, the Festivalbar and numerous theatrical performances in collaboration with the duo Garinei and Giovannini, such as ‘Rugantino’ or ‘Vacanze Romane’. He directed and choreographed many operettas at the Operetta Festival organized by the Verdi Theater in Trieste, as well as operas such as Offenbach’s ‘Les contes d’Hoffmann’, Puccini’s ‘La Rondine’ and ‘Il mondo della Luna’ by Paisiello.
Landi passed away this morning at his home in Rome. His collaborator Cristina Arrò confirmed this to Adnkronos, explaining that the choreographer and director had had health problems for some time.
