Francesco Fracanzano (1612–1656) was an Italian painter who participated in the Masaniello rebellion.
Francanzano was the brother of Cesare Fracanzano, a pupil of Spagnoletto and the master of Salvator Rosa, whose sister he had married. His married life was an unhappy one, as by the instigation of his wife he committed crimes for which he suffered death at Naples in 1656.
