Severino Gazzelloni (January 5, 1919 – November 21, 1992), was an Italian flute player.
He was born in Roccasecca and died in Cassino. Gazzelloni was the principal flute in the RAI orchestra for 30 years and dedicatee of many works. Composers including Luciano Berio, Pierre Boulez, Bruno Maderna and Igor Stravinsky wrote pieces for him.
Gazzelloni was also a flute teacher. Some of his notable pupils include jazz player Eric Dolphy, classical flautist Abbie de Quant, flautist Ann Cherry, and composer Norma Beecroft. Dolphy honored Gazzelloni by naming a composition for him which he included in his 1964 Out to Lunch! album.
