Andrea Fantoni (1659–1734) was an Italian sculptor and wood-carver of the late-Baroque period, active in the region near Bergamo.

He was born in Rovetta in 1659, and he died in Bergamo in 1734. He trained with his family of artisans as well as the noted wood carver Pietro Ramus (1639–1682), and then traveled to Parma to work in the Palazzo Ducale. He returned to Rovetta in 1679. His studio produced a variety of works, including statues, reliefs, and wood carving. He is best known for his wooden confessional from the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, Bergamo, and the Duomo of St. Alessandro in Brescia, as well as the pulpit in the Basilica di San Martino at Alzano Lombardo. There is also an altar at a parish church in the valle Camonica near Cerveno. In Clusone, in the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta are a number of sculptures. He also has works in the Ognissanti church in Rovetta.
