Alessandro Momo was an Italian actor, most noted for his role in 1974's Scent of a Woman. He died in a motorcycle accident in Rome on November 19, 1974, a few days before turning 18.

He began his career very young, as the protagonist in a series of photo stories for boys, also acting together with Giusva Fioravanti.

He became famous thanks to his performances alongside Laura Antonelli in the movies Malizia by Salvatore Samperi about venial sin, and his role in Profumo di donna (Scent of a Woman), by Dino Risi, where he was co-starring with Vittorio Gassman and Agostina Belli.

Momo died from a motorcycle accident in the weeks following the end of the making of the film. The bike that had the fatal accident, a Honda CB750 [3], was lent by his friend Eleonora Giorgi, who left for a trip; the actress was later investigated for reckless expectations because Alexander was not yet 18 years of age and was not entitled to drive superbike, according to the regulations at the time. Some time later, the singer Patrizio Sandrelli dedicated a song to his memory, which had some success: Brother in love. Alessandro is buried in the cemetery of Verano, in Rome, along with his father Gabriel.
