Guido Ara (28 August 1888 – 2 July 1975) was an Italian association footballer and manager from Vercelli in the region of Piedmont. He is most noted for his playing career at Pro Vercelli where he was a one club man, winning six Serie A titles; during the club's entire history they only won seven. Ara represented Italy at international level.

Ara went on to manage some of the top clubs in Italy, including Pro Vercelli; he managed the club when they won their seventh and final scudetto title, meaning anytime Pro Vercelli won the Italian Football Championship, Ara was at the club.
