Mario Perazzolo (7 June 1911 3 August 2001) was an Italian footballer. He was part of the 1938 FIFA World Cup-winning squad, Italy's second World Cup title. He earned 8 caps for the Italian national team in the 1930s. During his career he played for Genoa.

Like many great players Mario evolved technically. He started his career as an inside forward, a position he played for five years at Padova and three at Fiorentina. He later switched to half-back where he played his best seasons for Genoa. Even for the national team he played in Meazza's position in an outting just after winning the Olympic title to then switch to midfield as the World Cup approached. He was a starter in their final warm up before leaving for Paris, however Pozzo decided to go with Serantoni instead. He would win another six caps with the national team. At nearly forty years of age he played his last season at Siracusa in Serie B having won the FIFA World Cup and the Coppa Italia with Genoa.

He died on August 3, 2001 in Padua, aged 90.
