Pietro Fregoso (or Campofregoso; 1330 – 22 April 1404) was a statesman who became the 13th Doge of Genoa.

|Preceded by||Antoniotto Montaldo|

Genoa, Republic of Genoa
|Died||Genoa, Republic of Genoa|

Pietro became bachelor of law and joined the family's business involved in trade with the Orient. On the political scene, he obtained a number of positions including the role of Podestà of the city of Novi and, in 1373, he became admiral of the Republic and was in charge of the conquest of Cyprus. For his success in the Aegean, he was given a palace in Genoa, then ruled by his brother.
On July 15, 1393, at the age of 63, he was elected doge after the ruling doge Antoniotto di Montaldo had stepped down for unknown reasons. But Pietro retained the dogeship only one day and ceded the position the very next day to Clemente Promontorio. After this short episode, Pietro continued his political career, in particular as member of the Council of the commune until his death on April 22, 1404.
