Angelo Schiavio (15 October 1905 - 17 April 1990) was an Italian football player. Schiavio spent his entire career with Bologna FC, the club of the city where he was born and died. He won the 1934 FIFA World Cup with Italy.

Regarded as one of Italy's greatest strikers, he was 178 cm tall and weighed 69 kg; he made his name as a quick and powerful centre-forward, with good technique, who was an accurate finisher with both feet, and who often used physical force to score goals. In 2012, he was inducted into the Italian Football Hall of Fame.

Schiavio made his debut for the Bologna first team in 1922-1923, playing 6 games and scoring 6 goals. At that time, the Italian league was organised into several different regional groups. He continued to play (and score) regularly for Bologna and in 1925 Bologna won the first league championship in their history, Schiavio contributing 16 goals in 27 games. The last season played in this "grouped" format was 1928-1929. In this season Bologna won their second championship, with Schiavio averaging more than a goal per game with 30 goals in 26 games - his most prolific domestic campaign.

The 1929-1930 season saw the advent of the Serie A format. Schiavio played in his first Serie A game away against Lazio on the 6 October 1929 - a 3-0 loss for Bologna. His first goal in Serie A came on the 13th of November later that year, in a 2-2 draw at home to Triestina. In the 1931-1932 season he scored 25 goals which led to him winning the Capocannonieri award for top scorer in Serie A. Bologna won two more Scudetti in 1936 and 1937, although Schiavio only played in two games in the latter victory. Schiavio's final season was in 1938-1939, when he made 6 appearances in the league, but failed to score.

Schiavio spent 16 seasons with Bologna, scoring a club-record 244 goals in all competitions, 109 of which were scored in the Italian top division.

Schiavio made his debut for the national team in 1925, when he was 20 years old. He scored both goals in a 2-1 win over Yugoslavia in Padova. He participated in the 1928 Olympic Games, scoring 4 goals in 4 games.

Schiavio was instrumental in Italy's first World Cup win. Supported by players such as Luis Monti and Giuseppe Meazza he scored a total of 4 goals. FIFA originally credited Schiavio as one of three joint top scorers in the tournament (along with Czechoslovakia's Oldřich Nejedlý and Germany's Edmund Conen). However, FIFA revised this in November 2006, giving Nejedlý a fifth goal and the outright leading scorer title. Schiavio opened his account with a hat-trick in the opening game against the USA. However he was not able to score in any of the next two games Italy played in order to reach the final.

In the final Czechoslovakia took the lead, but a late goal by Raimundo Orsi levelled the game. In the 5th minute of extra-time Schiavio converted a cross by Enrique Guaita - this goal ultimately proved decisive as the final score was 2-1. This was Schiavio's final game for Italy.

In total Schiavio gained 21 caps for the national team, scoring 15 goals.
