Horacio Carbonari (born 2 May 1974) is a former Argentine footballer who played as a defender. He was nicknamed "Bazooka" due to his powerful free-kicks.

Born in Santa Teresa, a town in the southern end of Santa Fe Province, Carbonari began his career at Rosario Central. His debut at the first division was in 1993. In the Argentinian club, he won the Copa Conmebol and was the competition's joint top scorer with 4 goals, having scored twice in the second leg of the final against Atlético Mineiro. He was signed by Derby County in the summer of 1998 for £3million by former Derby manager Jim Smith where he quickly became a fans favourite. He went on to play ninety times for the club, scoring nine and winning praise from the fans after scoring twice against rivals Nottingham Forest. However, in 2002 while John Gregory was manager he became out-of-favour at the club and had a short loan spell at Coventry City in 2002, before being released by Derby.

He went back to Rosario Central later that year and helped the club qualify for the 2004 Copa Libertadores, where his club lost to São Paulo in the Round of 16 on the penalty shootout, with Carbonari scoring from the spot. He was released after a knee injury ended his season and decided to retire in 2005.

At the beginning 2006–07 season, he was appointed the general manager of Rosario Central.
