Francesco Toldo (born December 2, 1971, Padua) is an Italian football goalkeeper, who currently plays for Inter Milan.

Toldo came up with A.C. Milan, however, he never played a game with the club. Instead, the Italian giants loaned him out to Trento and Ravenna from 1991 to 1993. Toldo then joined Fiorentina, and became the club's starter for eight seasons, winning the Coppa Italia twice, and playing a UEFA Champions League for the viola. He transferred to Inter Milan in 2001 and has been their starter since.

As of the end of 2004, Toldo has been capped 28 times for Italy. Facing competition from high profile keepers such as Gianluca Pagliuca, Angelo Peruzzi, and Gianluigi Buffon, Toldo, chosen to be the starter in Euro 2000 also because of a injury to Buffon himself before the start of the tournament, helped his country to a second-place finish: during the semi-final match against the home team of Netherlands, Toldo saved two penalties during the match and two during the shootout, eventually won by Italy. He was a non-playing backup on the Euro 96, 1998 World Cup, 2002 World Cup, and Euro 2004 squads.

In 2005, Toldo lost his place in the Internazionale lineup, after the arrival of Brazilian keeper Júlio César. Rumours linked him both to Palermo and Fiorentina in January 2006, because of the contract run out soon, but neither move ever materialised. In February 2006, he extented his contract to summer 2009, ended the transfer rumours.
