Raffaele Fornari (born 23 January 1787 in Rome, Italy, died 15 June 1854 in Rome) was a Cardinal of the Catholic Church. He was a member of the Papal diplomacy and was nuntius to Belgium in 1842, to France 1842–1851, and prefect of the Congregation for Catholic Education 1851–1854.

He was named as a cardinal in pectore in 1846 by Pope Pius IX and the nomination was formally published later in 1850.
