Massimo Calearo Ciman (born 23 November 1955 in Vicenza) is an Italian entrepreneur and politician from Veneto.

Before entering politics he held several leadership roles within Confindustria, at local and national level. Despite being a liberal-conservative, at the 2008 general election Calearo headed the list of the centre-left Democratic Party (PD) and was elected to the Italian Chamber of Deputies. However he soon found that the party was too left-wing for him and in November 2009 took part to the foundation of Alliance for Italy (ApI) with Francesco Rutelli.[1]

After having launched Alliance for Veneto (ApV) in April 2010,[2] in September Calearo left ApI in order to support Silvio Berlusconi's government.[3]
