Captain of the Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia, which partially sank on 13 January 2012 after hitting a reef off the Italian coast and running aground at Isola del Giglio, Tuscany, requiring the evacuation of the 4,250 people on board. Seventeen people are known dead. Schettino had deviated from the ship's computer-programmed route to treat people on Giglio Island to the spectacle of a close sail-past or near-shore salute.

Schettino was arrested shortly after the accident, and later released into house arrest. He is accused of manslaughter and abandoning his ship ahead of his passengers.

Schettino comes from a family involved in the shipping business since generations. He began hist career with Tirrenia, a ferry company. In 2002 he started working for Costa, and became a captain in 2006.
