Luigi Pulci (15 August 1432 – 1484) was an Italian poet best known for his Morgante, an epic story of a giant who is converted to Christianity and follows the knight Orlando.

He was born in Florence. His patrons were the Medicis, especially Lorenzo Medici, who sent Pulci on diplomatic missions. Even so, sometime around 1470 Pulci needed more money and went into the service of Robert Sanseverino, a northern condottiere.

His brother Luca (1431-1470) was also a writer. His works, all in the Italian language, include Pistole, Driadeo d'amore, and Ciriffo Calvaneo.
