Antonio Juliano (born 1 January 1943) is a former Italian footballer who played as a midfielder.[1]

He played the majority of his club career with Napoli, although he finished his playing days with Bologna.[1] He earned 18 caps for the Italy national football team,[1] and was in the championship-winning team of Euro 68. He was also in the Italian squad for three World Cup finals: 1966,[2] 1970[3] and 1974.[4] However, he played only one World Cup match, the 4-1 defeat by Brazil in the 1970 final as a substitute.

After returning from ruling to Napoli, oversaw the acquisition of Ruud Krol in 1978 and in 1984 the assignment, from Barcelona of Diego Armando Maradona.
