Self-taught, at age 13 Alessandri began to incise the linoleum, while two years later he painted his first oil painting. At the end of the Second World War, he opened his first studio, called "La soffitta macabra"
(the macabre attic).
Immediately after the war, Alessandri perfected the study from life (still-life drawing) thanks to the master of charcoal drawing Giovanni Guarlotti
, who however refused to teach him the use of color.
It was during this period that Alessandri created fantastic characters, made as Indian ink drawings and known as the pascals
