Alessandro Serenelli was St. Maria Goretti's murderer. On July 5, 1902 Alessandro Serenelli (who was Maria's neighbor) at age 20 tried to abuse 11 year old Maria in many different ways. He stabbed her more than a dozen times because she wouldn't do what he wanted her to do with him. She eventually died the next day. But before Maria died, she forgave Alessandro for everything that he did. Maria died at age 11 years 9 months and 21 days old. (Maria is a beatified Saint in the Roman Catholic Church.)

Alessandro Francesco Tommaso Manzoni (March 7, 1785–May 22, 1873) was an Italian poet and novelist.

He was born in Milan. Don Pietro, his father, aged about fifty, belonged to an old family of Lecco, originally feudal lords of Barzio, in the Valsassina. The poet's maternal grandfather, Cesare Beccaria, was a well-known author, and his mother Giulia had literary talent as well. Alessandro was a slow developer, and at the various colleges he attended, he was considered a dunce. At fifteen, however, he developed a passion for poetry, and wrote two sonnets of considerable merit. Upon the death of his father in 1805, he joined his mother at Auteuil, and spent two years mixing with the literary set of the so-called "ideologues," philosophers of the 18th century school, among whom he made many friends, notably Claude Charles Fauriel. There too he imbibed the anti-Catholic creed of Voltairianism, and only after his marriage, under the influence of his wife, did he exchange it for a fervent Catholicism.

I know the name of Alessandro Safina, a tenor from Italy, who's famous for the song "Luna".

When I first heard his name, I was really like: wow... this man, with this beautiful, melting away voice, have such a beautiful name too.
Alessandro has something romantic in it. It's like you say, Romeo.
I love this name. Because of the tenor, but also because it's beautiful and in my opinion, romantic.
