Torquato d'Alessandri was an Italian fencing master at the turn of the 17th century. Little is known about this master's life, but he was been Bolognese by birth and seems to have been an initiate of the tradition of Filippo di Bartolomeo Dardi. A fencing manual by d'Alessandri, titled Il Cavalier Compito ("The Complete Cavalier") and dedicated to a certain Guiseppe Cesari d'Arpino, was published in Viterbo in 1609.
