Gabriel Scognamillo (27 October 1906 – 31 May 1974) was an Italian art director. One of the first films he worked on was Jean Renoir's provocative 1931 film "La Chienne". Two years later he had moved to Hollywood where one of his first films there was MGM's production of "The Merry Widow" (1934) with Maurice Chevalier and Jeanette MacDonald.

Scognamillo also worked on several in the Andy Hardy, Maisie and Dr. Kildare series of films. Some of his efforts in the 1950s include "The Great Caruso" (1951), "The Story of Three Loves" (1953), for which he received an Academy Award nomination,[1] and the children's science fiction film Tobor the Great (1954).

One of his final films was the imaginative George Pal fantasy, "7 Faces of Dr. Lao" (1964).
