Gianfranco Bedin (born 24 July 1945) is a former Italian footballer who played for Internazionale as a defensive midfielder; a ball-winner, he was known for his anticipation, stamina, work-rate, man-marking, and his ability to read the game, defensively supporting his more creative and offensive team-mates.

He would later also play for U.C. Sampdoria (1974–78), A.S. Varese 1910 (1978–79), A.S. Livorno Calcio (1979–80), and San Frediano Rondinella S.S. (1980–81), before retiring in 1981.
