Giulio Corsini (born 28 September 1933 in Bergamo; died December 31, 2009 in Bergamo[1]) was an Italian professional football player and coach.

He played for 15 seasons (327 games, 3 goals) in the Serie A for Atalanta B.C., A.S. Roma and A.C. Mantova.

After finishing his career as a player, he led Atalanta B.C. to the promotion to Serie A in his first season as head coach. After they were relegated, he was fired before he could bring them back. When he took reign of U.C. Sampdoria next, Sampdoria was supposed to play on the second level Serie B. However, due to a scandal and penalties on other teams, Sampdoria kept their Serie A spot. With the roster already assembled for Serie B, Sampdoria had to fight hard to avoid relegation. After the season he was hired by S.S. Lazio, but was fired after just 8 games in the next season in which Lazio gained only 5 points and were second from the bottom. Next he was hired by A.C. Cesena, who qualified for the UEFA Cup for the first time in their history. Cesena was knocked out of the cup in the first round and he was fired again. He did not work in the Serie A after that.
