Amore is the only album by Alessandra Mussolini. It was released in Japan by Alfa Records in 1982 and produced by Miki Curtis. Italian, English and Japanese were used in the album.[1]

In 1982 Mussolini and her mother visited Japan. Mussolini had not sung before, but when asked, her mother said she can sing for an advertisement. Mussolini said "When I sang in Japan, Cristiano Malgioglio (author of some songs on the album) saved me".[2] The album was first shown in Italy on Canale 5 in 1996.[3]

In 2000, a copy of the album was sold in London for 10 million lira.[4] In 2021, while interviewed by Canale 5, Mussolini performed "Tokyo Fantasy", a song on the album.[5]
