Girolamo Graziani (1604 – 12 September 1675), was an Italian poet.
Girolamo Graziani () has been one of the most famous poet of 17th century. But his fame didn't survive him. During his life he was appreciated mainly for his epic poems La Cleopatra (1632) and il Conquisto di Granata (1650).
The latter has been the source for Giacomo Leopardi's Consalvo (1833). Actually the plot (Love in the imminence of death) and the names of the main characters (Consalvo and Elvira) of Leopardi's Consalvo seem to come from Graziani's poem.
