Filippo Zappata was an Italian engineer and aircraft designer. In the early 1940s he designed a large four-engined airliner, the Breda-Zappata BZ.308, produced by Breda. Other Zappata projects included the Bz 304 twin-engined attack bomber, the Bz 305 four-engined troop and cargo transport, the Bz 306 four-engined long-range bomber, and the Bz 401 light reconnaissance-bomber seaplane. No prototypes of these aircraft were completed.
