Antonio Cariglia (28 March 1924 - 20 February 2010) was an Italian politician.
Graduated in political and social sciences, Cariglia was MP and MEP several times between the 60s and the 90s for the Italian Democratic Socialist Party, of which was secretary from 1988 to 1992, when he became president of the party.
