Paolo Giovannelli (born October 1, 1960 in Cecina) is a retired Italian professional football player.

He played 11 seasons (172 games, 12 goals) in the Serie A for A.S. Roma, Pisa Calcio, Ascoli Calcio 1898 and A.C. Cesena.

He is mostly remembered by A.S. Roma fans for his winning goal that he scored on March 2, 1980 in a Derby della Capitale game against S.S. Lazio. The goal that he scored from a free-kick with 5 minutes remaining to play in the game was the only league goal he scored in his Roma career.

His Roma career was hampered by a serious injury he suffered in 1981, which greatly limited his appearances in the next three seasons.
