Angelo Tozzi was an Italian butterfly swimmer who was active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He won two Italian titles in the 100 metre butterfly (1971, 1973), was runner-up in 1972 and third in 1967-69 and 1974. Over 200 metres he won six Italian titles (1968, 1970-74) and was runner-up in 1967.

With the national team Tozzi made his Six Nations début in Dortmund in September 1967. He was a semi-finalist in the 200 butterfly at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics and won three medals (one silver and two bronze) at the 1971 Mediterranean Games. His second Olympic participation was unfortunate in 1972, as he was disqualified for an irregular kick in the 200 fly. He stopped competing after the 1975 Mediterranean Championship after failing to win medals there.
