Fulvio Collovati (born May 9, 1957) is an Italian former footballer, who played defense. He was a stopper and also played on the international level, winning the 1982 FIFA World Cup.

Collovati was born in Teor, in the province of Udine. Brought up through the A.C. Milan youth academy, he debuted in Serie A with the rossoneri in the 1976-77 season, in which he played eleven times and even won the Coppa Italia. In the next season he played more regularly (25 appearances, 1 goal) but his definitive moment came in 1978-79 in which, thanks to his 27 appearances, he won the scudetto. It was one of the few joys he had at Milan, because in 1979-80 Milan was relegated to the Serie B for sports betting. Unlike other players, Collovati stayed on with Milan in the Serie B and played 36 games scoring two goals. Back in Serie A the next season, Milan surprisingly was relegated again but this time for their onfield exploits: this time Collovati (who in the meantime was called up to the Nazionale) decided to join rival Inter Milan.

In his first year with the nerazzurri (1982-83), he played in 28 games. At Inter he was always a mainstay in the defense, but in September 1986 he wanted to be closer to his hometown of Udine and he went to play for Udinese Calcio, where he only stayed for one season (20 games, 2 goals). He ended his career after two years at A.S. Roma (1987-88 and 1988-89) and four at Genoa C.F.C. (from 1989-90 to 1992-93), all in Serie A.

In his international career, Collovati played 50 games and scored 3 goals: he debuted February 24, 1979 in Italy-Netherlands (3-0) and he scored his first Azzurri goal on February 16, 1980 during Italy-Romania (2-1). Collovati was a protagonist at the 1982 World Cup in Spain where Italy won the World Cup for a third time. He is now an analyst for Italian station RAI.
