Raffaellino (1550-1570) was a gifted Mannerist painter from Reggio Emilia (hence his name) and a disciple of the artists Taddeo Zuccari and Federico Zuccari. He worked mainly in Rome during the 1570s and died there prematurely at age 28.

There is a drawing by Raffaellino of a design for a chapel with an altar piece of The Adoration of the Magi now in the National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh. Bartsch 5.
