Falsi allarmi is the sixth studio album by Italian singer-songwriter Alice, released in 1983 on EMI Music.

The album includes the single releases "Il profumo del silenzio", "Carthago", "Solo un'dea" and "Notte a Roma".

After the chart success of the duet "Zu Nah Am Feuer" with German singer Stefan Waggershausen in early 1984 the album was re-released in West Germany, Switzerland and Austria in the Spring of that year with the duet added as a bonus track, placed as track B5. The Benelux editions of the re-release instead included the English-language version "Close to the Fire". In 2003 "Zu Nah Am Feuer" was included on Waggershausen's compilation Duette & Balladen.

After Alice's participation in the 1984 Eurovision Song Contest with another duet, "I treni di Tozeur" with Franco Battiato, Falsi allarmi was again re-released in the Benelux, and again placing this bonus track as B5. The original duet version of the track has since been included on Eurovision compilations such as The Story of Eurovision, The Very Best of Eurovision and Grandes éxitos del Festival de Eurovision and the song also appears on the CD set of Eurovision Winners and Classics produced to coincide with the Congratulations 50th Anniversary special of late 2005 as well as on the accompanying DVD. A solo version with Battiato was included on his 1985 album Mondi lontanissimi and a classical interpretation with a symphony orchestra on 1994's live album Unprotected. Alice in turn recorded a solo version for 1987's Elisir and again for the career retrospective Personal Jukebox in 2000, then with the London Session Orchestra, arranged and conducted by Gavin Wright.

An alternate version of the track "Notte a Roma" was also included on the 1987 album Elisir.
