If it is a movieclip, you do not need a background, so to make the background transparent just remove it altogether.
Thanks, I'm half way to the solution.
I've removed the movieclip's background and it is transparent now, but I've realized that is not enough.
For a website I use a movieclip as pages' container where I load the various pages (using addChild).
I've made the pages transparent as you suggested me, but I also need to make the pages' container transparent.
Following your suggestion I've removed its background... it is transparent now, but it affect the pages I load inside it.
Pages' animations result messed up.
In example in one animation I have 3 images which appear at the center of the movieclip and then move to another position, instead as I removed the container background the the images enter on the stage from the right, appear stretched vertically and have other strange effects. Probably is the whole page to be added to the container in a bad way.
If I put the container background back the animations are correctly shown again.
Why this behaviour?

I cannot answer why, but it may be that the background defines some of the placement and sizing parameters for the pieces. I can suggest you try something to keep the background invisible though. There are two ways you could do this (at least).
1) If you would like to see the background while editing the file, then convert it into a movieclip (if it is not already one), assign it an instance name (say you name it "bg"), and assign its alpha property to be 0 (bg,alpha = 0; (that is AS3)).
2) If you don't need to see it while editing, then you can just select the nackground and edit its fill color alpha to be 0 via the color palette.
Thanks, I've used the first solution, it's perfect
