Italo Galbiati (born 8 August 1937 in Italy) is an Italian football coach and former player. He is a trusted assistant to Fabio Capello having worked with Capello at AC Milan, Roma, Juventus, Real Madrid and England national team. He has also managed AC Milan himself on a caretaker basis, and is currently an assistant manager to Capello with the Russia national team.

He played for Inter from 1958 to 1960, only managing to win a single cap, in a Fairs Cup away game against Olympique Lyon. He later served as caretaker for AC Milan during the early 1980s, and then joining Fabio Capello as assistant through all of his managing career.
