Early life and education

Casaretto was born on 26 April 1967 in Buenos Aires.[1] He attended high school in Maciá. He studied public accounting at the National University of Entre Ríos, graduating in 1990. He then went on to complete a master's degree on economic history and policies from the University of Buenos Aires (2008) and a post-graduate degree on public policy from Universidad de San Andrés (2009).[2]

From 2004 to 2019, he taught courses on Argentine Economy, International Economy, and International Economic History at the Autonomous University of Entre Ríos.[2]

Political career

In 1990, Casaretto was hired by the Ministry of Economy of Entre Ríos as part of the Federal Investments Council (CFI). In 1993, he was appointed Director of Relations with the Provinces by the national Ministry of Economy, during the administration of Domingo Cavallo. Later, in 1995, he was appointed Secretary of the Treasury and Undersecretary of Investments of Entre Ríos by Governor Jorge Busti. Busti would later appoint him as Minister of Economy, Public Works and Services in 1997.[3]

In 1999, Casaretto was elected to the Senate of Entre Ríos for the Tala Department. He served as the Justicialist Party bloc president in the Senate. Following the end of his term in 2003, he served as an advisor to the provincial government during the second governorship of Jorge Busti.[3] In 2017, he was appointed president of the Entre Ríos Housing and Planning Institute (IAPV).[4]

National deputy

In the 2019 legislative election, Casaretto ran for one of Entre Ríos' seats in the Chamber of Deputies as the first candidate in the Frente de Todos list, followed by Blanca Osuna. The list was the second-most voted in Entre Ríos, with 45,20% of the vote, and both Casaretto and Osuna were elected.[5] He was sworn in on 4 December 2019 and formed part of the Frente de Todos parliamentary inter-bloc.[6]

As deputy, Casaretto formed part of the parliamentary commissions on Sports, Economy, Energy and Fuels, Foreign Affairs and Worship, and Housing and Urban Planning, and presided the commission on Prevision and Social Security.[1] He was a supporter of the legalisation of abortion in Argentina, voting in favour of the 2020 Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy bill, which passed the Chamber.[7]

Personal life

Casaretto has two sons, Germán (born in 1997) and Augusto (born in 2011). Sports-wise, he supports Club Atlético River Plate, Atlético Tala, and Atlético Echagüe.[2] He currently serves as vice president of Atlético Echagüe, and is responsible for the club's basketball team.[3][8]
