The Alfa Romeo Giulietta was an automobile manufactured by the Italian car maker Alfa Romeo from 1954 to 1965.

The first Giulietta model was a coupé, the Giulietta Sprint, introduced in late 1954. This was followed by a sedan in spring 1955 and in mid 1955, the open two-seat Giulietta Spider, featuring convertible bodywork by Pininfarina.

The Giulietta used an engine of 1290 cc, with light alloy cylinder block and twin overhead camshafts. The original Giulietta engine produced a power output of 65 bhp in the sedan and 80 bhp in the Giulietta Sprint. This was to be increased to 100 bhp in later sporting models such as the Giulietta Sprint Speciale and the Giulietta Sprint SZ (Sprint Zagato).

In 1977, Alfa Romeo introduced the Nuova Giulietta. This was not a development of the original Giulietta of 1954-1965, but a design based on the Alfa Romeo Alfetta chassis (including its rear mounted transaxle).
