Ginevra degli Almieri is a 1935 Italian historical drama film directed by Guido Brignone and starring Elsa Merlini, Amedeo Nazzari and Uberto Palmarini.

Giuseppe Farinelli (7 May 1769 – 12 December 1836) was an Italian composer active at the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century who excelled in writing opera buffas. Considered the successor and most successful imitator of Domenico Cimarosa, the greatest of his roughly 60 operas include "I riti d'Efeso" (1803, Venice), "La contadina bizzarra" (1810, Milan) and "Ginevra degli Almieri" (1812, Venice). More than 2/3 of his operas were produced between 1800-1810 at the height of his popularity. With the arrival of Gioachino Rossini his operas became less desirable with the public, and by 1817 his operas were no longer performed. His other compositions include 3 piano forte sonatas, 3 oratorios, 11 cantatas, 5 masses, 2 Te Deums, a Stabat mater, a Salve regina, a Tantum ergo, numerous motets, and several other sacred works.
Nazzari made his debut in "Ginevra degli Almieri" (1935), following a recommendation from Elsa Merlini. His first read role came with the 1936 film "Cavalry", and he followed it up with "The Castiglioni Brothers" (1937). His breakthrough came with the 1938 film "Luciano Serra, Pilot" (1938) where he played a First World War veteran who returns to fight for Italy during the Abyssinian War. Nazzari was transformed into a matinee idol, the most bankable star of Italian cinema. Following the film, Nazzari was invited to join the Fascist Party by Benito Mussolini, but declined saying "Thank You Duce! I would prefer not to concern myself with politics, occupied as I am with more pressing artistic commitments".
