Luciano Savorini was an Italian gymnast. Of Ferrara origin, he moved to Bologna with his family where he joined the Fortitudo gymnastics club in the old gym located in Via San Felice.

Savorini was included in the Italian side for the 1912 Olympic Games, thanks to the interest of the champion Alberto Braglia, gold medalist four years earlier. In Stockholm, Savorini won gold in the team competition, which was the seventh gold medal won by Italy (the first in teams) in Olympic history. In his long career spanning over 10 years, he won numerous medals and tournaments, then became an instructor with the Fortitudo Bologna club.
