This will be simple to troubleshoot - with two people - one in the car, and one underneath, watching the throw-out fork. Push down on the pedal, and see if the fork moves - if it doesn't (and it probably won't), then it's hydraulics OR the rod & arm assembly that connects the pedal to the clutch master. If it does, then you might consider taking out a second mortgage.
Bianchi1's suggestion that it could be that rod & arm assembly is a good one - that is a well known weak point on Alfas. Have your "watcher" move from underneath the car, to the seft front of the firewall, and observe whether the arm & lever that comes out of the aluminum casting behind the booster is pushing the clutch master when the pedal is depressed.
OR, the clutch master could have died - if it starts working again once things cool down, it might point to that (keep in mind that the master cylinders are right above the exhaust manifold, and it is summer).
