Carlo Ademollo (9 October 1824 – 15 July 1911) was an Italian painter born in Florence.


The nephew of Luigi Ademollo, he enrolled himself in the Academy of Fine Arts of Florence, under the patronage of Giuseppe Bezzuoli. He participated in the Promotrice of 1848 with diverse paintings of figures in contemporary costume. A traditionalist, he frequented the Caffè Michelangiolo but did not adhere to the Macchiaioli movement. Many of his paintings featured as subjects scenes of the Apennine countryside in Tuscany.
