Gautieri helped Atalanta back in to Serie A last season but he has quit the club regarding a dispute over his contract.
The 34-year-old's deal was due to expire next summer but Atalanta had promised Gautieri they would extend his stay at the club.
But they reneged on the offer and the experienced forward was able to annul his contract with the Bergamo side.
He had spent two seasons with Atalanta after joining from Piacenza but will continue his career with Lecce.
Gautieri has inked a two-year contract with Zdenek Zeman's side and trained with his new team-mates for the first time on Tuesday.
