Per Bredesen (born 22 December 1930) is a former Norwegian footballer. He played as an Inside forward for a number of Italian clubs, and was one of the first Norwegian footballers to achieve success in a foreign league.
In 1952, Bredesen became a professional when he was signed by Italian side Lazio. Because the Norwegian FA at the time allowed only amateur players to play for the national team, this move also ended Bredesen's international career.
Bredesen played three years at Lazio, and later played for Udinese, AC Milan, Bari and Messina. In 1957, as a member of Milan, he became the first – and to this date, the only – Norwegian to win the Scudetto. Overall, Bredesen played 214 matches in Italian football and scored 50 goals. In 1961 he left Italy and moved back to Norway, where he rejoined Ørn-Horten. He played his last match for Ørn-Horten in 1969
