Alberto Granado (August 8, 1922 – March 5, 2011) was an Argentine–Cuban biochemist, doctor, writer, and scientist. He was also the youthful friend and traveling companion of revolutionary Che Guevara during their 1952 trip around Latin America, and later founded the Santiago School of Medicine in Cuba. He authored the memoir Traveling with Che Guevara: The Making of a Revolutionary, which served as a reference for the 2004 film The Motorcycle Diaries, in which he was played by Rodrigo de la Serna. An elderly Alberto Granado makes a short appearance at the end of the film.

Alberto Granado Romero (Hernando, Córdoba, Argentina, 8 de agosto de 1922 – La Habana, Cuba, 5 de marzo de 2011) fue un científico y escritor argentino.Los padres de Granado fueron Dionisio T. Granado (un español que trabajaba en la compañía de ferrocarriles) y Adelina Jiménez Romero. Estudió Bioquímica, Farmacia y Ciencias naturales, y a los treinta años de edad decidió dejar su tierra para hacer un viaje sin rumbo fijo por toda Latinoamérica con su amigo Ernesto “Che” Guevara. La contemplación a lo largo del trayecto de las constantes calamidades a las que eran sometidos los sectores más humildes tuvo un efecto determinante en la modelización del pensamiento político de ambos jóvenes y dejó profundas huellas en la historia de la segunda mitad del siglo XX.

Diarios De Motocicleta also known as The Motorcycle Diaries is an adaptation of a journal written by Ernesto “Che” Guevara (Bernal) when he was 23 years old. He and his friend, Alberto Granado (de la Serna) are typical college students who, seeking fun and adventure before graduation, decide to travel across Argentina, Chile, Brazil and Peru in order to do their medical residency at a leper colony.

The film begins as a buddy/road movie in which Ernesto and Alberto are looking for chicks, fun and adventure before they must grow up and have a more serious life. As is said in the film itself, it’s about “two lives running parallel for a while.” The two best friends start off with the same goals and aspirations, but by the time the film is over, it’s clear what each man’s destiny has become. Great movie!
