Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Goffredo Alessandrini (Cairo, September 9, 1904 - Rome, May 16, 1978) was an Italian script writer and film director. He also acted, edited, and produced some films. He started in films collaborating with Alessandro Blasetti. He was one of the most important film directors in Italian fascism. His films received several awards at the Venice Film Festival during the Fascist era: the Mussolini Cup for Best Italian film in 1938 for Luciano Serra pilota, and in 1939 for Abuna Messias. He received the Bienale Award in 1942 for Noi Vivi and Addio Kira! His most remembered and important works are two anti-Communist films (combined to make up 4 hours), both based on Ayn Rand's We the Living. Without Rand's permission, We the Living was made into a pair of films, Noi vivi and Addio, Kira in 1942 by Scalara Films, Rome.
