Ferdinando Castagnoli (June 18, 1917 – July 28, 1988) was a Roman topographer who taught at the University of Rome.
Among Castagnoli's fieldwork accomplishments was the amazing discovery of the Latin sanctuary at Lavinium (modern Pratica di Mare) and its series of 13 altars, a find that was revealed to the world in 1959. Also at the site is the so-called heroon of Aeneas.
He was a student of Giuseppe Lugli. Among his students was Adriano La Regina, former archaeological superintendent of Rome.
