Alberto Lattuada was an Italian scriptwriter, film director, actor, film producer and editor.

Son of composer Felice Lattuada. He studied architecture in Polytechnic University of Milan, where he was in contact with two architecture film makers. With one of them, Luigi Comencini, Lattuada was recovering old movies and saving others from destruction, thus creating what later was the Cineteca di Milano. During Second World War he made two movies: "Giacomo l'idealista" (1943) y "La freccia nel fianco" (1945). After the war, he joined the group of film makers that conceived the ide of the Italian Neorrealism (cinematographic movement that emerged in the first half of the 20th century as a reaction to postwar), and filmed "Fugitive" (1946), with which he contributed to this movement.

He directed movies such as "Luci del varietà" (1950), "Ana" (1951), "La spiaggia" (1954), and literary adaptations like "The Overcoat" (1952), "Tempest" (1958) and "Dog's heart" (1976). He also filmed "Come Have Coffee with Us" (1970), a master piece of black humour, and worked in the serie "Christopher Columbus" (1984). "Una spina nel cuore" (1986) was his last movie.
