Giovanni Bracco (6 June 1908 at Biella – 7 August 1968 same place)[1][2][3] was an Italian racing car driver.

He lived in Biella, home town of other racing aces such as Mario Porrino and Lamberto Grolla. Before and after World War II he had been racing Lancia Aprilias.[4] He won the 1948 Italian Grand Prix (2-litre class) in a Maserati A6 GCS, before joining Ferrari 1950-52, winning the 1952 Mille Miglia in a Ferrari 250. With his younger pupil, Umberto Maglioli, he got second in the 1951 Mille Miglia, driving a Lancia Aurelia B20. He raced a Maserati 200S in 1955. He once lost control of his Delage 3000, accidentally hurting five spectators standing too close to the road at the 1947 Italian Grand Prix.[5]
