Born in Cervia, Ravenna as Coriolano Gori, Gori graduated in piano, harmony and composition at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan.[1] He entered RAI as a member of its orchestra, then he became the musical director of its office in Rome.[1]

Gori was best known as a composer of scores for films, and composed around 80 of them. These included several Spaghetti Westerns, poliziotteschis and thrillers, such as Primitive Love, Massacre Time, Dead Men Don't Make Shadows, Werewolf Woman and The Iron Commissioner.[1][2] He also composed several pop songs, and three of them entered the competition at the Sanremo Music Festival.[1]
