Oreste Puliti (18 February 1891 – 5 February 1958) was an Italian fencer.[1] He won four gold medals and a silver at three Olympic Games.[2][3]

His teammates were accused of attempting to inflate his score by losing to him in the final of the Men's Sabre in 1924. He was disqualified for threatening to assault a Hungarian judge, Gyorgy Kovacs.[4]
