Luigi Miradori (c. 1600-1610 - c. 1656) was an Italian painter of the Baroque period, active mainly in Cremona.

Miradori was born in Genoa, thus also called il Genovese or Genovesino. He was a pupil of the painter Panfilo Nuvolone[1] or il Tanzio or Pietro Martire Neri.[2] In Cremona, he painted a Virgin in Glory for church of San Clemente in Cremona; and a Massacre of Innocents for the church of San Lorenzo. He painted an Execution of the Conspirators, once in the Casa Borri in Milan. He painted a Story of San Rocco for the Cathedral of Cremona, a St. John the Damascene & the Madonna (1648) for the church of Santa Maria Maddalena, a Rest on the Flight into Egypt for the church of St. Imerio,[3] and a Miracle of the bread & fishes and a Last Supper for the Palazzo Comunale. In the Cremonese Seminario he painted a Birth of San Carlo Borromeo (1642) and in the Museo Civico there are 11 paintings.
