Carlo Falconi (20 October 1915 – 24 September 1998) was an Italian journalist and writer about Roman Catholicism.

Ordained as a Catholic priest in 1938, Falconi left the priesthood in 1949 and became a journalist.[1]

The Kirkus Review said of The Popes in the Twentieth Century, "On the whole, then, the book is a readable and not uninteresting, but primarily subjective, history of the twentieth-century papacy, that will hold little appeal for a critical audience."[2]
