Júlio Carlos Santiago "Ghito" Vernazza (born September 23, 1928 in Buenos Aires) is a former Argentine footballer. He was a forward who played for Platense and River Plate in his native Argentina until 1956, when he moved to Italy and signed for newly-promoted Serie A club Palermo. He played four seasons in Sicily, two in Serie A and two in Serie B, scoring over 50 goals and becoming one of the major players in the team history.

In 1960/1961, Vernazza played for AC Milan, where he obtained a second place. In 1961/1962, he moved to Vicenza, where he played two seasons before retiring in 1963 at the age of 35.

In April 2009 Palermo paid tribute to Vernazza with an official invitation in the Sicilian capital city. He was also awarded and presented to the Stadio Renzo Barbera public before the Serie A league game against Torino.
