Nicolò Napoli (born February 7, 1962 in Palermo) is an Italian former football player turned manager.

A former professional player with several Serie A teams, including Juventus F.C., he moved to Romania in 2007 to work as a manager with Liga I outfit Universitatea Craiova. On July 5, 2009 he then accepted an offer from another Liga I club, FC Braşov,[1] only to leave it three weeks later due to family issues.[2]

On August 20, 2009 he signed a one-year contract (with an option for a further one-year extension) with Liga I team Astra Ploieşti.[3] He didn't finished his contract, being sacked in April 2010.[4] In 2011, he returned to Craiova for a third spell, but was sacked because of poor results.

In September 2012, Napoli came back to Romania, accepting the offer to manage the newly promoted in Liga I, CS Turnu Severin. He signed a contract until the end of the year, and the agreement wasn't renewed.

At the end of June 2013, he signed an agreement on 3 seasons with Universitatea Craiova club which he returns for the fourth time in his career.
