Salvatore Albano was a 19th century Italian sculptor.
He was born in Oppido Mamertina in Calabria, to parents of limited means. He began in Calabria as a sculptor of wooden Presepi or Nativity scenes. Because of his talent, his townspeople gave him a stipend to study in Naples. There he trained under a cavalier Sorbille, also from Calabria. After a year, he trained in the local Accademia under its director Tito Angelini. In 1865, his native province continued his stipend of 60 lire per year for three years. He won a number of contests in his Naples. In 1867, he submitted his Resurrection of Lazarus and a Cain to an exposition in Rome. He moved to Florence by 1869, and spent the remainder of his career there.
