Raffaele Sansone (20 September 1910 - 11 September 1994) was an Italo-Uruguayan football player and coach from Montevideo, Uruguay. He played club football most notably for Bologna where he spent over a decade, winning Serie A four times. After that he moved to Napoli where he played one game before retiring, after that he became a manager.[1]

As well as playing for many years at club level, Sansone was also called up by the Italian national football team as an oriundo, he was allowed to play for Italy due to his ancestry. He turned out for the azzurri a total of three times.
