Taddeo Carlone (died 25 March 1613) was a Swiss-Italian sculptor and architect.

His father, Giovanni, was a sculptor from Como. A native of Rovio, in Ticino, he moved with his father to Genoa. Taddeo's brother Giuseppe was a sculptor with his brother, and later in Lombardy. Taddeo married Geronima Verra in Genoa.[1] He became the head of an important family of artists, including his sons Giovanni Battista and Giovanni, who were noted painters. Bernardo and Tommaso, sons of Giuseppe, were sculptors and architects in Genoa and Piedmont.

He died in 1613 and is buried in Genoa at the church of San Francesco in Castelletto.
