Piero Taruffi (born 12 October 1906 in Albano Laziale, died 12 January 1988 in Rome) was an Italian racing driver who competed in Formula 1 from 1950 to 1956. He was one of the more successful drivers in the early days of Formula 1 despite his relatively old age, winning a single race, the 1952 Swiss Grand Prix. He quit racing in 1957 after the Mille Miglia, the risks of endagering other lives being too great for him.
