Aldo Aniasi, Cavaliere di Gran Croce OMRI[1] (31 May 1921 – 27 August 2005) was an Italian politician.

Aniasi was born in Palmanova, in Friuli. During the Fascist regime and the Italian Social Republic, he participated to the Italian resistance movement, with the name of Iso Danali, an anagram of his true name. After World War II, he entered the Italian political scene as a member of the Italian Socialist Party (PSI).

He was also Minister for Public Health and Minister for the Regions. After the crisis and dissolution of the PSI, Aniasi entered the Democrats of the Left.
