Roberto Pettinato is an Argentine musician, journalist and television presenter.
Pettinato's father, Roberto Sr., was a high-ranking corrections officer in the administration of Juan Peron. When a coup deposed Peron in 1955, he was accused of being involved in political repression and was driven out of the country together with his family. Roberto Jr. has maintained that leaving his childhood home in the dark is his earliest memory.
Pettinato became involved in the Argentine rock scene of the late 1970s mostly as a journalist with the Expreso Imaginario monthly magazine, which he directed from 1980 until its demise in 1982. In parallel, he was the on-and-off saxophonist for the 1980s band Sumo, led by Anglo-Italian Luca Prodan.
