Luigi Maria Burruano (20 October 1948 – 10 September 2017 in Palermo) was an Italian film, stage and television actor. He began his career in Sicilian-language cabaret and theatre before turning his attention to films.
Born in Palermo, the son of a doctor, Burruano made his acting debut in a local amateur company. He got a large local success playing Rancu Tanu in the comedy play Palermo oh cara and got his national breakout appearing in the eight season of the TV-series La piovra.

In 2006 he was arrested on charges of stabbing his daughter's divorced husband, who did not pay alimony to his daughter nor pay child support.
