SE BUSCA: TRAS LA PISTA DE SERGIO LEONE / 2018 / Published by Circulo Rojo.

Become an adventurer while walking through the sets that the Italian director chose for his five great films. An initiatory journey that enables you to look back on every scene and feel like a special viewer. Almeria benefited from Sergio Leone because he opened the province globally to the Western genre when he created a new style: The Western All’Italiana, which earned him recognition as a director, as well as the province of Almeria.

When he was already working as a teacher, he continued studying French and Hispanic Philology until he graduated, never neglecting his cinematographic research, which resulted in several books: Almería y el Cine (1992); Almería un mundo de película (1999) and Cabalgando hacia la aventura (2011), in addition to an endless number of articles and collaborations for other books and special studies, as well as collaborations and advice for other authors and journalists. He is the author of numerous projects, including ALMERÍA DE CINE, given to the City Council of Almería and presented in FITUR 2011. He created the association CINEAL in 1993, of which he is the president. He is also a member of the Institute of Almerian Studies (Instituto de Estudios Almerienses).
