Lorenzo 'Laurie' Serafini (born 1 November 1958) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with Fitzroy in the VFL during the late 1970s and early 1980s. He is the younger brother of Renato Serafini, who also played for Fitzroy.

Serafini started out as a full forward but in his second season was moved into defence and soon cemented the fullback spot. He later played some football as a half back flanker and was Fitzroy's top vote getter in the 1983 Brownlow Medal count. A three time Victorian representative, Serafini remained involved in football after injuries caused his premature retirement and when his old club merged with the Bears he became a director at the Brisbane Lions.
