Giuseppe "Beppe" Signori (born 17 February 1968 in Alzano Lombardo, Province of Bergamo) is a retired Italian football striker, one of the top scorers in Serie A history and widely regarded as one of the best football players to have never received a winners medal in competitive football. He was a fast, left footed striker who was prolific goalscorer. During the early part of his career he was used as a left winger, where his accurate crossing and pace were put to good use.

Signori used to squeeze his feet into boots that were too small for him, claiming that this improved his touch and accuracy on the ball. He was also known for his unique style of taking penalty kicks. He would stand next to the ball (without taking any run-up) and shoot.
