The famous Italian composer Ennio Morricone has passed away at age 91, APA reports citing Italy's Rai News24.

The Oscar-winning composer died in the early hours of Monday at a clinic in Rome after suffering a hip fracture several days before.

Morricone wrote classical works and film scores, including music for The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, directed by Sergio Leone.

He received an honorary Academy Award in 2007 and won the prize outright in 2016, for his soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight."
