Giovanni Pietro Berti (c. 1590–1638) was an Italian composer and organist of Saint Mark's, Venice. He was active in the first half of the century. Berti had a tenor part in the musical chapel of the Church of San Marco in Venice, when he entered the contest to fill the vacant spot of second organist - which was vacant because of the death of P. Giusti. He managed to win, beating F. Usper, Picchi G. and GB Locatelli.[1]

His works include Cantate et arie (2 vols., Venice, 1624, 1627)[2]
