Roberto Michele Piatti (Turin, July 29, 1961) is an Italian entrepreneur and engineer.
Piatti was involved in the automotive field since his university years. At that time, he worked at Auto & Design magazine and La Stampa as a contributing editor, and he wrote several books.
After obtaining a master's degree in mechanical engineering at Politecnico di Torino, Piatti joined I.DE.A. Institute as a project leader in the automotive field, creating relations with emerging countries such as China, India, and South America.
In 1996, Piatti moved to Stile Bertone, where he stayed for ten years, becoming General Director in 1998. He managed the company's expansion, improving its range of services, and oversaw innovative projects born in that period such as the Opel Filo (2001), the Saab Novanta (2002) with drive-by-wire technology, and the Cadillac Villa (2005).
Due to his passion for sailing, Piatti moved the knowledge he obtained in the automotive field to nautical and aeronautical pursuits.
In March 2006, he founded Torino Design, a new car design center, of which he is the owner and managing director. He put together a pool of designers, engineers, managers, and model developers highly skilled in automotive and industrial design.
Recently, Piatti and Torino Design developed several sustainable-mobility projects, designing innovative hybrid and fully electric vehicles for international car companies and start-ups.
