Sandro Salvadore (Italian pronunciation: [ˈsandro salvaˈdoːre]; 29 November 1939 – 4 January 2007) was an Italian footballer who played as a defender for Italian clubs A.C. Milan and Juventus throughout his career, winning titles at both clubs. He also represented the Italy national team, participating in the 1960 Summer Olympics, and two FIFA World Cups, and was also a member of the team that won the 1968 UEFA European Football Championship.

From 1960 to 1970 Salvadore won 36 full caps for Italy at international level. He was part of the teams that played both at the 1962 and 1966 FIFA World Cups (the latter as captain).

Salvadore usually played as a libero, although he was also capable of playing in other defensive positions, including as a centre-back. He is considered to be one of the greatest Italian defenders of all time.
