Carlo Guarnieri is an Italian academic. He was born on October 3, 1949, in Milan, Italy. After completing his studies he began lecturing at the University of Bologna in 1990, eventually becoming a professor.

He published his first book, L'indipendenza della magistratura, in 1981. This was followed by Pubblico ministero e sistema politico in 1984. In the 1990s, he published Magistratura e politica in italia: pesi senza contrappesi in 1993 and, with the assistance of Patrizia Pederzoli, La puissance de juger: pouvoir judiciaire et démocratie in 1996.

In 2001 Guarnieri published La giustizia in italia. A year later he followed this up by publishing La magistratura nelle democrazie contemporanee. Writing with James L. Newell, Guarnieri published Italian Politics: Quo Vadis? in 2005. This book reviews Italian politics of 2004, with eleven contributors covering a range of topics, including European and local party alliances, urban voting trends, European Union relations, pension and judicial reform, middle-class politics, the significance of the Ministry of the Economy and Finance, and the rise of Prime Minister Berlusconi's Forza Italia in its first decade. The following year he published Il sistema politico italiano: radiografia politica di un paese.
