Fortunato Chelleri (originally: Keller, also: Kelleri, Kellery, Cheler) (May or June 1690 – 11 December 1757) was a Baroque "Kapellmeister" and composer.

Chelleri's father had emigrated from Germany to Italy; his mother was from the Italian family of musicians Bazzani/Bassani. (He is also related to Giovanni Battista Bassani.)

He started out composing operas for companies in Northern Italy, then served noble families in Barcelona, Florence and Venice.

In 1722, he was contracted by the FÜrstbischof Johann Philipp Franz von Schönborn in Würzburg. Later, he was Hofkapellmeister in Kassel to the Landgraf Karl von Hessen-Kassel. Later he followed the Landgraf's son and successor Frederick of Sweden to the royal court of Stockholm. He returned to Germany with the title of a Hofrat (court councillor).
