Arturo Dominici (2 January 1918 - 7 September 1992) was an Italian actor and dubbing artist.

Born in Palermo, Dominici became best known for his many villainous roles in horror and fantasy films. He is best remembered for his performance as the monstrous Igor Javuto in Mario Bava's Black Sunday (1960) and the evil Eurysteus in the 1957 Steve Reeves epic Hercules.

His filmography includes more than 80 titles, including Antonio Margheriti's Castle of Blood (1964), in which he appeared with Black Sunday star Barbara Steele. Dominici dubbed the voice of Austrian actor Walter Ladengast in the Italian release version of Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979).

Dominici's daughter, Germana, is an Italian stage actress; at the age of 14 she had a small role as a farm girl in Black Sunday.

Dominici died of cancer in 1992 and is buried in Rome.
