Giuseppe Moro (born January 16, 1921 in Carbonera, Treviso; died 1974) was an Italian football (soccer) player.

In eight season in Serie A Giuseppe Moro defended the goal of six different teams (Fiorentina, Bari, Torino, Lucchese, Sampdoria and Roma). One of his notable saves was from a shot by Mortensen in a classic England-Italy match played in London in 1949; in that game he produced miracles for 75 minutes before giving up goals to Rowley and Wright which did not diminish his stellar performance. His debut on the national team was in Budapest in 1949 and also made an appearance in the 1950 World Cup in a win against Paraguay substituting for Sentimenti.

To this day, he is the goalkeeper with the most saved penalties in the history of Serie A; 16 of 44 from 1947 to 1955 (1 in 3 stopped).
