Osvaldo Fattori (born June 22, 1922 in San Michele Extra, Verona) was an Italian football (soccer) player.

Osvaldo Fattori was one of the major figures in the player transfer market after the second world war. After having been the backbone of Audace San Michele, which later gave rise to Mariolino Corso, Fattori went to Vicenza making his Serie A debut as the starting defensive midfielder. In 1946 he went to Sampdoria which acquired him (along with Bassetto) for a record 10 million lira (in 1942 during the war Valentino Mazzola was acquired by Torino for one million) after exhaustive bargaining with Inter. He would get to Inter in the summer of 1947 after only 12 months with Sampdoria. With Inter, Fattori would stay for seven seasons winning two championships in 1953 and 1954.

He was a classy defensive midfielder that played on the right side, a little slow but very able in organizing the offensive play. He earned four caps for the national team including the win against Paraguay in the 1950 World Cup.
