Umberto Piersanti (born February 26, 1941) is an Italian poet, prose writer, professor of sociology of the literature at the University of Urbino, in Italy, and editor of the literary revue Pelagos.

He was born in Urbino. During his writing career, Piersanti published many poetry books, some novels and essays.

He made his debut in 1967 with the collection of poems La breve stagione; the melancholy preponderated in his juvenile poems, with Apennine nature, transformed into a mythical and classic place.

In Nascere nel '40 (1981) e Passaggio di sequenza (1986), Piersanti examined the historical and politic contest between 1960-1980.

He was a nominee for the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005.
