Paolo Taviani (born November 8, 1931) and Vittorio Taviani (September 20, 1929 – April 15, 2018), collectively referred to as the Taviani brothers, are noted Italian film directors and screenwriters. They are brothers who always work together, each directing alternate scenes.

Paolo Taviani's wife Lina Nerli Taviani has been costume designer of many of their films.

At the Cannes Film Festival the Taviani brothers won the Palme d'Or and the FIPRESCI prize for Padre padrone in 1977 and Grand Prix du Jury for La notte di San Lorenzo (The Night of the Shooting Stars, 1982). In 2012 they reached again the top prize in a major festival, winning the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival with Caesar Must Die.
