Mauro Soderini (1704 - after 1739/1751) was an Italian painter of the late Baroque period, mainly painting sacred subjects and active in his native Florence.[1][2]

He studied in Bologna and Rome. In Florence he worked with Vincenzo Meucci and Giovanni Domenico Ferretti. He painted altarpieces for San Salvatore: a Deposition (1738; and for Santo Stefano: a Miracle of San Zenobi (1745).[3] Luigi Lanzi describes him as a pupil of Giovanni Camillo Sagrestani or of Sagrestani's mentor, Carlo Cignani.[4]
