Armando Fizzarotti (1892–1966) was an Italian screenwriter and film director. Fizzarotti was a native of Naples, and his films are generally set in the city. He was specifically hired to direct Malaspina (1947) because of his experience making Neapolitan-style films. The film helped revive Neapolitan cinema, which had been suppressed during the Fascist era as production was centralised in Rome.
His son Ettore Maria Fizzarotti was also a film director.
