Antonio "Tony" Zappia (born 13 June 1952) is the Australian Labor Party representative for the electoral division of Makin in South Australia in the House of Representatives. He was elected at the 2007 federal election, defeating Liberal representative Bob Day. This was one of the wins that took the Labor Party from opposition to government.

He was Mayor of the City of Salisbury from 1997-2008, and has run three fitness centres. Zappia has held ten National Championships in powerlifting.[1]
