Angelo Zanelli (1879–1942) was an Italian sculptor.

He was born at San Felice del Benaco, near Brescia. In 1904 he moved to Rome, where he met Felice Carena. He won the contract for the realization of sculptures in the large Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II in the same city, to which he worked until 1925. They include the tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the statue of Goddess Rome.

He usually worked for public commissions, also abroad.
