Luigi "Gigi" Simoni (born 22 January 1939) is an Italian football technical director, currently in office with Gubbio of Serie B, and a former player and coach. As manager of Italian club Internazionale, he won the UEFA Cup in 1998.

Luigi Simoni was born in Crevalcore, Emilia-Romagna, in Italy.

A good footballer, who played for Mantova, Napoli, Torino, Juventus, Brescia and Genoa, Simoni started his successful managing career with Genoa itself, in the 1974–75 season. The next year, he was able to bring the rossoblu back to Serie A.

After a long series of promotions, with Pisa, Brescia and Cremonese among them, and good results with outsider teams (Cremonese again, and Napoli), Simoni was called by Massimo Moratti to coach Internazionale of Milan in 1997. With an in-form Ronaldo on his side, Simoni won the UEFA Cup over Lazio in 1998, and managed a second-place finish in Serie A, behind Juventus.
