Piero Lardi Ferrari (born 22 May 1945 in Castelvetro di Modena, Italy) is the second and only living son of Enzo Ferrari and presently 10% owner of the Ferrari automotive company where he is also Vice Chairman of company. His mother was Enzo's mistress, Lina Lardi.[citation needed] As divorce was illegal in Italy until 1975, he could not be acknowledged as a Ferrari family member until the death of Enzo's wife, Laura, in 1978.[citation needed] His legitimate half-brother, Dino, died in 1956 of muscular dystrophy.

In 1988, as the sole heir of the Ferrari family, he was nominated Vice Chairman following his father's death. In 1998 he was nominated president of Piaggio Aero Engineering.

Ferrari was awarded the title of Cavaliere del Lavoro in 2004.[1] He also possesses a degree in engineering from the Modena University. He is married to Floriana Nalin and has a daughter and two grandchildren. He lives in Modena in his father's old residence.
