Italian admiral during World War II. He was active in the Italo-Turkish War, Adriatic Campaign (World War I) and East African Campaign (World War II).

During World War I, Bonetti served for 21 months on submarines with the rank of lieutenant, first on submarines F 7 and F 13 and later in command of F 10; during this period he received a Silver Medal of Military Valor. Later in the war he became executive officer of the destroyer Ardito, and he received a commendation for an action in September 1917.

For his defence of Massawa in World War II, Bonetti was awarded the Officer's Cross of the Military Order of Italy and the Cross of Order of the German Eagle. He was sent to a POW camp in British India, and remained there until 1945.

Repatriated after the war, Bonetti was promoted to the rank of vice admiral and placed in command of the Livorno Naval Academy; he was placed in auxiliary for age limits in October 1947. In 1956 he was promoted to admiral and transferred to the reserve. He died in Genoa on 19 February 1961 at age 72.
