Salvatore Fresi (born 16 January 1973) is an Italian footballer.

Fresi was born at La Maddalena, Sardinia. His first professional championship was with Salernitana, with whom he conquered the promotion to Serie B. At the under of that season he was selected for the Italian Under 21 selection, of which he later became captain.

After another Serie B championship with Salernitana, in which his team neared promotion to Serie A, he was acquired by Inter. Fresi played for the Milanese team until 1998, winning a UEFA Cup in 1998. In that year he was loaned back to Salernitana, and later played for Napoli and Bologna, returning to play frequently; this gained him a place at Juventus F.C., but here Fresi found few presences in Serie A, although he was part of the team which won the scudetto in 2002-2003.

Later he played for Perugia, Catania and again Salernitana, in which he remained despite the relegation to Serie C1 in 2005. His last team was Battipagliese, playing in the Eccellenza series, in 2005-2006.

Fresi was selected six times for the Italian football national team, in 1995-1999, but never played a single match.
