Early life and education

Peretti's father, Count Aldo Maria Brachetti Peretti, was for thirty years, until September 2007, head of the family Group “API” (Anonima Petroli Italiana), founded by his maternal grandfather Cav. Del Lavoro Ferdinando Peretti. His mother, Mila, worked for more than 30 years in the Red Cross and is the only woman in Italy to carry the military grade of General.

After graduating from high school with a diploma in classical studies, Peretti enrolled in the School of Business and Economics at the University of Rome (“La Sapienza”). During his studies he served his military service as an official in the Carabinieri in 1980-1981 in Naples, achieving a Solemn Encomium for the 1980 Irpinia earthquake from the President of Republic.


Peretti began his career in 1983 in the family company, the energy group API Anonima Petroli Italiana – IP Italiana Petroli 100% owned by API Holding, of which he is, together with his brothers, 100% shareholder. His father, head of the Group for 30 years, delegated full powers to Peretti in September 2007. Peretti is Chairman and CEO of API Holding, the financial safe of all the API Group companies. He is Chairman of the two sub-holdings of the electric sector, Api Energia and Api Nova Energia. He is the Chairman member of the Coordination Committee of the API Group. He moved to London for four years where he initiated the petroleum trading office. He then transferred to Paris for two years to study administration and finance after an internship at the Paribas Bank; he returned to the headquarters in Rome in the 1990s, taking growing responsibilities in other sectors of the Group.

Personal life

In 2000 Peretti married Her Royal Highness Princess Mafalda Margarethe von Hessen, daughter of Their Royal Highnesses Prince Moritz of Hesse and Princess Tatiana of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg. They have two sons, Cosmo and Briano. Peretti and his wife were divorced in 2014.
