Alessandra Garofalo


Alessandra Garofalo has been a fan of Fred Astaire since about 1991. Home sick from school, she caught some of his movies on television and has been a fan ever since. A resident of Trieste, Italy, Alessandra has long been fascinated by Astaire’s Austrian background, something not often examined in depth by biographers. An avid history scholar, she has conducted extensive research on the Austerlitz genealogy (Fred Astaire was born Frederick Austerlitz in 1899) for the past eight years, and her quest for more background information is ongoing. She also collects documents and photographs pertaining to the events and aspects of Astaire’s life and career. In her free time, Alessandra enjoys travel and is an award-winning amateur photographer.
