Raffaellino del Colle (1490 – 1556) was an Italian Mannerist painter active mostly in Umbria. He was born in Colle, near Borgo Sansepolcro in Tuscany.

He is also called Raffaellino della Colle. A pupil of Raphael, whom he is held to have assisted in the Farnesina and the Vatican. After Raphael's death, Raffaellino worked under Giulio Romano in the Sala di Constantino in the Vatican. After the 1527 Sack of Rome, like most of Romano's studio and most of the foreign art community, Raffaellino and other artists dispersed through Italy, most returning to their home cities. Rafaellino went to Città di Castello, near his birthplace, where he painted altar-pieces for the principal churches, which are now mostly to be found in that town's Municipal Art Gallery. He also worked in Borgo San Sepolcro. He worked for the service Duke Della Rovere in Urbino from 1539 to 1543. He also worked with Girolamo Genga in Pesaro, decorating the Camera dei Semibusti, Sala della Calunni, and Cabinet of Hercules of the Villa Imperiale for Francesco Maria della Rovere, Duke of Urbino. In Perugia he worked at the Rocca Paolina (1540). In 1536, Vasari commissioned from ephemeral street decorations based on the occasion of the entry of Charles V into Florence.
