Giovanna's Father (Italian: Il papà di Giovanna) is a 2008 Italian drama film directed by Pupi Avati.


In Bologna in the late 1930s, Michele Casali (Silvio Orlando) teaches design at the same institute where his daughter Giovanna (Alba Rohrwacher) studies. Michele is a loving father but overprotective. He does not recognize the mental health problems of his daughter, and can not save her from a tragic fate, when she is locked in a mental institution after killing her best friend.
