Sergio 'Serge' Silvagni (born 28 June 1938) is a former Australian rules footballer in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Silvagni made his debut for the Carlton Football Club in Round 7, 1958. He retired at the end of the 1971 season after a stunning career.

Silvagni went on to become Carlton's reserves coach, and served as the club's caretaker senior coach for a few weeks in 1978 between the departure of Ian Stewart as coach and the appointment of Alex Jesaulenko as captain-coach.[1]

He is the father of Stephen Silvagni, who played 312 games for Carlton and was regarded as one of the greatest full backs in the league's history.
