The director and screenwriter Aldo Vergano, was one of the most prolific screenwriters and distinguished himself for his career in directing the attention posed to the historical and social events of the time. He founded in 1927, with Alessandro Blasetti, the magazine Cinema, which continued publication until 1931, as it was accused of going against the fascist regime. He began to collaborate in film, and always with Blasetti, realized in 1929, his first opera sun, where the latter begins in directing. In the thirties, he worked regularly as a scriptwriter and subjectionist for some white-phone film directors. He made his directorial debut in 1938, with the film Pietro Micca, and in 1943 he directed those of the Mountain, in collaboration with Blasetti. After the war, he made the film The Sun Rises again, commissioned and produced by the ANPI (National Association of Partisans of Italy), one of the pillars of Neorealism, which analyzed the partisan struggle and generally the resistance.
