Luigi De Agostini (born April 7, 1961) is an Italian former football defender, who represented the Italian national football team at Euro 1988 and the 1990 FIFA World Cup.

De Agostini was born in Udine. His professional career began with his hometown club, Udinese, where he rarely played, forcing him to move to Serie C1 for Trento for a year. He was immediately back in the Serie A next year, however this time for Catanzaro before he moved back to Udinese, this time much more prominent. In 1986, he was signed on for Hellas Verona, though it was the year after that before he found his greatest success, while signed with Juventus.

During his five-year stay with Juventus, he achieved his first international cap, (a 0-0 draw against Norway on May 28, 1987) won both the Italian Cup and the UEFA Cup, and participated in Euro '88 (scoring against Denmark) and the Italia '90 World Cup. Unfortunately, his time with Juventus also included his last game for the Italian national team on September 25, 1991, a 1-2 loss to Bulgaria. He scored for Juventus as they beat Fiorentina in the 1990 UEFA Cup Final.

After that, Luigi moved to Inter Milan for a year, then transferred to Reggiana to end his career.

De Agostini is now the Team Manager at his old club, Udinese. His job entails acting as a middleman between the team's manager, Giovanni Galeone, and the squad of players.
