Cosimo Bottegari (1554—1620) was an Italian lutenist and composer of the Late Renaissance era. He was born in Florence and in 1573 became a gentleman at the court of Duke Albert of Bavaria in Munich. He left a manuscript of compositions titled Il Libro di canto e liuto which is an important source for Italian songs of the period.
