Michele Di Puppo (born November 23, 1945 in Bolzano ) is an Italian politician.


Di Puppo studied sociology ( laurea in sociologia ) at the University of Trento and then worked as a manager and executive board member of a stock corporation in the private sector.

In 1993 Di Puppo was elected to the South Tyrolean state parliament on the Democrazia Cristiana - Partito Popolare Alto Adige list and thus also to the regional council of Trentino-South Tyrol . After initially serving as vice-president of the state parliament for a short time, he became a member of the South Tyrolean provincial government in the Durnwalder II cabinet in 1994 as state councilor for finances and transport and as deputy governor . In 1998 he was re-elected as a candidate for the Popolari - Alto Adige Domani list . In the Durnwalder III cabinet , he assumed responsibility for industry, transport, finance and the budget in addition to the office of Deputy Governor.

In the state elections in 2003, Di Puppo was no longer able to win a mandate for the Unione Autonomista in second place after preferential votes behind Luigi Cigolla .
