Massimiliano Cappioli (born January 17, 1968 in Rome) is a former Italian professional football midfielder.

After having spent his early years in the AS Roma youth system, he moved to Cagliari in 1988 and played five seasons with the Sardinian side. The Serie C1 club, managed by Claudio Ranieri, obtained two consecutive promotions in 1989 and 1990, and Cappioli played three Serie A seasons with the rossoblu before to return at AS Roma in 1993. In 1994 he made his one and only appearance for the Italian national team, a 0-1 home loss in Naples to France. He left Roma in December 1996 for Udinese and successively moved to several other Serie A clubs in the next years.

In 2000 he signed for Palermo of Serie C1, captaining the side to win the league and being its topscorer with 13 goals, also thanks to the fact he was the main penalty kicker. After another season with Palermo, he left the rosanero in 2002. After several months of inactivity, he signed on February 2003 for Taranto, but failed to impress, and retired at the end of the season.

In September 2008 he made a comeback into football, returning as a player/manager to his childhood team Pescatori Ostia in the Eccellenza league, together with former professional players Marco Delvecchio and Antonio Criniti.
