Romeo Benetti (born 20 October 1945 in Albaredo d'Adige) is a former Italian footballer. Benetti was a midfielder known for his stamina. He usually played in a defensive role and his hard-tackling style epitomised the catenaccio tactics made famous by Italy during the 1970s. He was also known for his goal-scoring ability despite being a predominately defensive player.
The wide midfield player started his career in 1968 with Juventus. However, he joined Sampdoria on loan for one season. His breakthrough came in the 1970/1971 Serie A season, when he joined A.C. Milan. In 1971 he made his debut for Italy.
In 2007 he was voted in at number 30 in a list of footballs 50 greatest hardmen by times online.
