GINO LANDI, il cui vero nome è Luigi Gregori, nasce nel 1933 sul palcoscenico del “Dal Verme” di Milano, teatro nel quale i suoi genitori si esibiscono in uno spettacolo di varietà.
Studia danza nella stessa città con Oreste Faraboni, per iniziare poi la carriera teatrale come ballerino ma ben presto si accorge di preferire la composizione coreografica piuttosto che esibirsi davanti al pubblico.
Una sera del 1956, al Teatro Alcione di Milano, un suo lavoro, “Bulle e pupi con fanfulla”, è notato da Erminio Macario che lo vuole come coreografo per il suo prossimo spettacolo. Entra così nella “Grande Rivista” mettendo in scena la commedia musicale non sparate alla cicogna di Amendola e Maccari.
Con la nascita della televisione si aprono nuovi orizzonti e Landi, entrato alla Rai nel 1958, realizza le coreografie di trasmissioni molto popolari, diventando uno tra i più celebri coreografi nel panorama televisivo e teatrale nazionale ed internazionale.
Dal 1969 inizia un importante sodalizio, durato quasi quarant’anni, con Garinei e Giovannini che lo vogliono creatore dei balletti di tutti i loro spettacoli.
Dal 1970 collabora con il Festival Internazionale dell’Operetta di Trieste, per il quale ha realizzato, come coreografo o come regista o in entrambi i ruoli, più di trenta produzioni.
Dal 1977 intensifica la sua attività in televisione nella duplice veste di coreografo e di regista realizzando, sia per la Rai che per le nuove televisioni commerciali, più di settanta programmi televisivi.
