Giuseppe de Liguoro (1869–1944) was an Italian actor and film director of the silent era. He came from an aristocratic neapolitan family. De Liguoro was a pioneering figure of early Italian cinema, making a number of historical films in early 1910s such as L'Inferno (1911) and Mary Tudor (1911).[1]

His son was the director Eugenio de Liguoro, who also occasionally acted in his father's films. His other son Wladimiro de Liguoro was also a filmmaker.
