Aldo Vergano (1891–1957) was an Italian director, screenwriter and journalist. He was the father of actress Serena Vergano.


Born in Rome, Vergano was the co-founder with Alessandro Blasetti of the magazine Cinematografo.[1]

He made his film debut with the screenplay of Blasetti's Sun, one of the most important films of the Italian silent cinema.[1] In the thirties, though persecuted by fascism for his political views, he was a prolific screenwriter of Telefoni Bianchi films.[1] He made his debut as a director with the patriotic drama Pietro Micca.[1]

Vergano is probably best known for the film The Sun Still Rises, produced by the PNA, (the National Association of Italian Partisans),[1] which is considered "one of the cornerstones of neorealism".[2]
