Gian Paolo Gobbo (Treviso, 1 April 1949) is a Venetist politician. He is the leader of Liga Veneta.

In 1978-1980 he was a founding member of Liga Veneta. Elected in 1990 to the Regional Council of Veneto, he was Vice President of the Region from 1994 to 1995.

He was national president of Liga Veneta from 1994 to 1998, when he replaced Fabrizio Comencini as national secretary. He rebuilt Liga Veneta after the split caused by those, led by Comencini, who contested Umberto Bossi's leadership of Lega Nord and formed Liga Veneta Repubblica.

Gobbo has been member of the European Parliament from 1999 to 2004 and then again since 2006.

Since 2003 he is also Mayor of Treviso.
