Giuseppe Morosini (19 March 1913 – 13 April 1944) was an Italian priest and partisan. He was ordained to the sacred priesthood in 1937 at St. John Lateran's Basilica, becoming chaplain of the Royal Italian Army's 4th Artillery Regiment in 1941, but was transferred to the city of Rome in 1941 to help with youths who were displaced by the war. He soon joined the Italian resistance movement. He was arrested by the Gestapo and imprisoned, tortured and, despite pressure from the Vatican, executed.

He received a posthumous medal, a plaza in Rome was named after him, and Italy issued a postage stamp in his honor in 1997.
