Don Giovanni is an album by the Italian singer-songwriter Lucio Battisti. Nearly four years in its making, it was released in March 1986 by the Numero Uno label and was later re-released by Sony BMG. In stylistic terms, it features an avant-garde blend of an almost minimalist sound, featuring synthpop inspired electronics, with classic Italian popular music.[1] The title of the album alludes to Mozart's famous work Don Giovanni.

The album was Italy's third best-selling album in 1986.[3]
