Alessandro Bianchi (born 28 January 1945, in Rome) is an Italian academic and politician, best known for having formerly served as Minister of Transportation from 2006 to 2008.

A registered member of the Italian Communist Party until its disbandment, Bianchi is currently professor of Urban planning at the Faculty of Architecture of University of Reggio Calabria. He was part of the Prodi II Cabinet from May 17, 2006 to May 8, 2008; his name was chosen by a list of prominent left-wing independent people proposed by the Party of Italian Communists. However, he never took membership of such party and instead opted to join the Democratic Party in March 2008.[1]
