Filippo Coarelli (born 1936) is an Italian archaeologist, Professor of Greek and Roman Antiquities at the University of Perugia.

He is one of the foremost experts on Roman antiquities and the history of early Rome. A leading expert on the topography of ancient Rome, Coarelli produced a series of books from the 1980s and 90s that have altered modern thinking about how Roman topography developed. His work on Italian monumental sanctuaries of the late Roman Republic is considered standard.[1] Coarelli was born in Rome and was a student of Ranuccio Bianchi Bandinelli.

He led the team that discovered what is believed to be the villa in which Vespasian was born.[2]
