Andrea dei Mozzi (died 1296) was an Italian bishop, from the Mozzi family of bankers. He was a papal chaplain, for Pope Alexander IV and Pope Gregory IX. He was then appointed as Archbishop of Florence in 1287. He was translated by Pope Boniface VIII to Vicenza, in 1295, in a scandal that made him a character in Dante's The Inferno.[1]

He had a nephew of the same name.[1].
