Marco Cassetti (born May 29, 1977) is an Italian footballer who plays for Serie A side Roma, as a right-sided midfielder or right-back. He is a hard working, versatile player who is able to cross the ball well.

Cassetti started his football career at Montichiari, an amateur-level club inside the province of Brescia. In his two seasons with them he made 30 appearances and scored six goals. He then moved on to a Serie C1 team, Lumezzane, where he also stayed for two years. His debut in the Serie A came with Hellas Verona in a 1 1 draw with Bari. He was often a sub in his first two years with them but became a starter the next year when they were relegated to the Serie B. After that he was a typical starter for Lecce, playing with them for three seasons. In the 2006 07 season, Cassetti left Lecce to sign a four-year contract with Roma on a co-ownership deal for -1.5m due to Lecce's relegation. His teammate Mirko Vučinić also joined on loan for -3.25M.

In June 2007, the remain registration rights of Cassetti were bought for -851,500.

On 3 June 2010, he signed a new 1-year deal with Roma and his salary was increased to -1.8M. His contract was renewed again in March 2011.

Cassetti has been capped for the Italian national team five times.

He is currently a second choice for right back. He played two games against Slovan Bratislava, but he disappointed with his performance.
