Alberto Pariani (27 November 1876, Milan – 1 March 1955) was an Italian general.[1][2][3][4][5]

He fought during World War I, and ended the war as a commander of the 6th Alpini Regiment. From 1925 to 1926 he was Operations Chief of the Army General Staff. From 1927 to 1933 he served as a military attaché to Albania and simultaneously as head of the Italian Military Mission in the country.

He was promoted to full General in 1933 and named commander of the 11th Division Brennero until 1934. From 1934 to 1936 he was Deputy Chief of the General Staff, and from 1936 to 1939 he was Chief of the General Staff and Under-Secretary of War.

In 1939 he retired, but in 1943 he was recalled as a general commander of the Italian forces operating in Albania and as a General Governor of Albania (replacing Francesco Jacomoni di San Savino). In Albania, he resided with his family in the Presidential Palace of Tirana.

In September 1943, at the moment of the Italian armistice he was captured by the German Army and arrested. He was also arrested at the end of World War II for crimes alleged to have been committed during service in the Fascist regime, from which he was acquitted in 1947.
