Gabriele Tinti (born 18 December 1979 in Jesi, Italy) is an Italian poet and writer.

He has worked with the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the British Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the National Roman Museum, the Capitoline Museums, The Ara Pacis, the National Archaeological Museum, Naples and the Glyptothek of Munich composing poems for ancient works of art including the Boxer at Rest,[1] the Discobolus, Arundel Head, the Ludovisi Gaul,[2] the Victorious Youth,[3] the Farnese Hercules, the Hercules by Scopas,[4] the Elgin marbles from the Parthenon,[5] the Barberini Faun and many other masterpieces.

His poems have been performed by actors like Joe Mantegna,[6] Michael Imperioli, Burt Young,[7] Alessandro Haber, Robert Davi,[8] Vincent Piazza[9] and Franco Nero.[10]

His work focuses on the subject of death and suffering[11][12] and is mainly composed in the form of lucid and epigrammatic poetry. The humanity sung in his writings is the dramatic life of boxers, suicides, defeated heroes and the disabled.

In 2016 he published “Last words” (Skira Rizzoli) a collection of found poetry in association with Andres Serrano.[13]
