Alberto Demiddi (April 11, 1944 – October 25, 2000) was an Argentine rower who competed in the 1964 Summer Olympics, in the 1968 Summer Olympics, and in the 1972 Summer Olympics.

He was born in Buenos Aires and died in San Fernando of stomach cancer. In 1964 he finished fourth in the single sculls event. Four years later he won the bronze medal in the 1968 single sculls competition. In 1971 he won the gold medal at the European Championships in an upset over American Jim Dietz. The European Championships were renamed the World Championships shortly thereafter, and as a practical matter world rowing treated them that way at the time. At the 1972 Olympic Games he won the silver medal in the single sculls event.
