The Associazione Guide e Scouts Cattolici Italiani (AGESCI, Association of Catholic Guides and Scouts of Italy), founded in 1974, is a Catholic Guiding and Scouting association in Italy. AGESCI is coeducational and has more than 170,000 members.

Founders of AGESCI were the Associazione Scout Cattolici Italiani (ASCI, Association of Italian Catholic Scouts, founded in 1916) and the Associazione Guide Italiane (AGI, Association of Italian Guides, founded in 1943).

The association is a member of the Federazione Italiana dello Scautismo, Italy's national member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement and of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.

Affiliated to AGESCI are the Südtiroler Pfadfinderschaft, the Catholic Scout association of the German-speaking minority in South Tyrol,[1] and the Slovenska Zamejska Skavtska Organizacija (SZSO) serving Slovenians in Friuli-Venezia Giulia.[2]

In 1986, Pope John Paul II was given the Wood Badge insignia as a honorary AGESCI leader.
