Adam of Rottweil, (German: Adam von Rottweil; Italian: Adamo de Rodvila (Rottweil 14?? - L'Aquila 1???) was a fifteenth century scholar and printer. He was originally a pupil and collaborator of Johann Gutenberg. In 1477 Adam published in Venice one of the first German-Italian dictionaries. This work was clearer and better organized compared with the first German-Venetian dictionary published in 1424 by Georg von Nurnberg. In 1481 Adam obtained permission to establish a printing press in L'Aquila.
