Giacomo Mari (October 17, 1924 - October 16, 1991) was an Italian football (soccer) player.

Giacomo Mari is one of five Italian players (the others are Giampiero Boniperti, Gino Cappello, Ermes Muccinelli and Egisto Pandolfini) that played in both the 1950 and 1954 World Cups. Tireless, Giacomo Mari was a classic halfback waiting in the folds of midfield ready to halt the attack of the opposing forwards and wings. After three years of breaking in at Atalanta in his early career, he played four seasons with Juventus winning two championships next to the great Carlo Parola. Before the 1954 World Cup he went to Sampdoria and then concluded playing in Serie A with Padova. With the national team he debuted at the 1948 London Olympics, against Paraguay at the 1950 World Cup and against Switzerland at the 1954 World Cup.
