Two-dimensional semimetals have been the center of intensified investigations since the realization of graphene. In particular, the design of Dirac and Weyl semimetals has been scrutinized. Typically, Dirac metals emerge from crystal-field environments captured by density functional theory (DFT). Here, we show by angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) how a rotational symmetry broken massive Dirac semimetal is realized in Ca3Ru2O7. This Dirac semimetal emerges in a two-stage electronic transition driven by electron correlations beyond the DFT paradigm. The Dirac point and band velocity is consistent with constraints set by quantum oscillation, thermodynamic and transport experiments. Our results hence advance the understanding of the peculiar fermiology found in Ca3Ru2O7. As the two-stage Fermi surface transition preserves the Brillouin zone, translational broken symmetries are excluded. The mechanism and symmetry breaking elements underlying the electronic reconstruction thus remain to be identified. This situation resembles URu2Si2 that also undergoes an electronic transition without an identifiable symmetry breaking. As such our study positions Ca3Ru2O7 as another prominent hidden order parameter problem.
