Anticoli Corrado is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Rome in the Italian region Latium, located about 40 kilometres (25 mi) northeast of Rome.

Anticoli Corrado borders the following municipalities: Mandela, Marano Equo, Rocca Canterano, Roviano, Saracinesco.

Anticoli became known in the 19th century because its young inhabitants used to pose as models for the community of artists living near Piazza di Spagna in Rome. Some artists eventually went to see the birthplace of their models and found Anticoli a very picturesque site to the point of living there for some time. The town attracted artists until World War II.

Stanley Kramer's The Secret of Santa Vittoria (1969) was almost entirely shot here.
