Fabio Cudicini (born October 20, 1935) is an Italian former professional football (soccer) goalkeeper, who played from 1955 to 1973. With his 1.91 m he was one of the tallest goalkeepers of his time.

Born in Trieste, he was nicknamed Ragno Nero ('Black Spider') and was one of the most celebrated goalkeepers for A.C. Milan, helping them win the European Cup in 1969.

Cudicini played for Milan from 1967-73; he also played for Udinese (1955-58), Roma (1958-66) and Brescia (1966-67). Despite his achievements, Cudicini never played for the Italian national team, mainly because of the contemporary presence of several other notable players in his role such as Dino Zoff, Lorenzo Buffon and Enrico Albertosi.

He is the father of Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini.

He is the son of ex Ponziana Trieste defender Guglielmo Cudicini (deceased)
