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.
He made his film debut with the screenplay of Blasetti's Sun, one of the most important films of the Italian silent cinema. In the thirties, though persecuted by fascism for his political views, he was a prolific screenwriter of Telefoni Bianchi films. He made his debut as a director with the patriotic drama Pietro Micca.
Vergano is probably best known for the film The Sun Still Rises, produced by the PNA, (the National Association of Italian Partisans), which is considered "one of the cornerstones of neorealism".
