Antonio Gaspari was an Italian architect of the late-Baroque, active in both Venice and the terrafirma of the Veneto. He was a pupil of Baldassarre Longhena, and upon his master's death in 1682, he completed some of his projects, including Longhena's most famous work, the imposing church of Santa Maria della Salute. He likely died in his homestead in Castelguglielmo, in Polesine. One of his sons, Giovanni Paolo Gaspari (1712-1775), was a painter active mainly in Germany.
