Franz (Ignaz) Anton Bagnato, (15 June 1731 – 18 June 1810), also known as Francesco Antonio Bagnato, was the son of architect Johann Caspar Bagnato. Franz Anton Bagnato was born in Altshausen. Like his father he was an architect active during the Baroque period. Bagnato is mostly remembered for his works in the service of the Teutonic Knights and the Prince-Bishop of Constance.

From 1759 onwards, he worked for Prince-Bishop Franz Konrad von Rodt of the Bishopric of Constance, finishing amongst others the New Castle and the chapel of the seminary in Meersburg.
