Piero Drogo (born 8 August 1926 and died 28 April 1973) was an Italian racing driver and car builder. He raced in the 1960 Italian Grand Prix, finishing in 8th position.

After World War II, Drogo and his family moved from Italy to Venezuela, where Drogo began his racing career in sports cars. His first recorded result was at the 1956 Premio Nacional Ciudad de Maracay, where he finished first driving a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL.

In 1958, he returned to Italy. He became a racing mechanic for Automobili Stanguellini, an Italian sports car manufacturer, to help fund his racing aspirations. After his appearance in 1960 with Scuderia Colonia at the Italian Grand Prix, Drogo stopped racing.

Drogo entered a partnership with two other people to create Carrozzeria Sports Cars. The company produced sports and racing car bodies for a variety of Italian automakers, including Ferrari. Drogo's involvement in the company was primarily on the business management side. The company went bankrupt in 1971.

He was killed in an auto accident in 1973 after his car collided with a truck in a dark tunnel.
