Who was Aldo Vergano?

Aldo Vergano was an Italian director, screenwriter and journalist.

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 Il sole sorge ancora, produced by the PNA, which is considered "one of the cornerstones of neorealism".
