My friend Mr.Michael Caletka reply my problem on June 18, 2015:

1) Alla scoperta dell America - where does 1961 come from?
Long before any chronology was provided by an official site or book, there have been the fans.
The movie here is a documentary on how Columbus discovered America in 1492. That docu was only shown in Italian-TV, and propably only once, so it was not much known. In 1986 the first book with a filmography ever appeared: Hommage au Maitre Ennio Morricone by Jean Lhassa. Obviously he couldn't find more information on this move but the title (which alone is a great effort), and gave it the year 1961 - the earliest year in the filmography. This error was reprinted in 1990 by the filmography published by Martin van Wouw. Simply because no further information could be obtained. From that time on the error has been copied from one filmography to another.
This was until in 2006 we got a CD with the music of the film. Now in the liner notes it is clearly said, that the movie is from 1977 and I guess we can rely on that information. Laurent is in a way right too, when he states that "the music itself doesn't sound 1961, but is clearly 1977". If one is as acquainted with Morricone's work as Laurent (and has the musical ability), he clearly can identify according to the orchestration and arrangement-style, from when the music must derive. (He may not have been polite, but he has a point.)

I have a chance to find when I am studying the problem about MORRICONE and MORRIONE (see the post). I have found a very good web site: OPAC SBN (Online Public Access Catalogue) (http://opac.**n.it, sorry please use lowercase HTTP://OPAC.SBN.IT). It has very rich and relaible information and quick speed. After resolve the problem about MORRICONE and MORRIONE, I conveniently try to study the problem.
May be due to the difference of the text of Italy, no results in start search. After changing several key words, when use "Sergio Giordani" to research, the results appeared:

There I can clear see the TV released in 1971,composed by Ennio Morricone. Its original information is stored in the Mediateca di Fondazione Scuole Civiche di Milano - Milano - MI,number is MI1223 SCMSC . So the argument about the age of the TV seems to be conclusive
