Bandinello Sauli was born in Genoa, ca. 1481, the son of nobles Pasquale Sauli and Mariola Giustiniani Longhi.

Early in his career, he was a protonotary apostolic in Rome. He was also an abbreviator and papal scribe until 1511.

On October 5, 1506 Sauli was appointed Bishop of Malta at the age of 12. He held this position until 1509 when he was elected Bishop of Gerace and Oppido. He held this post until November 19, 1517.

Pope Julius II made him a cardinal deacon in the consistory of March 10, 1511. He received the red hat on March 13, 1511 and the deaconry of Sant'Adriano al Foro. He opted for the titular church of Santa Sabina on October 24, 1511.

He participated in the papal conclave of 1513 that elected Pope Leo X.

He was administrator of the see of Albenga from August 5, 1513 until November 19, 1517. On July 18, 1516, he opted for the titular church of Santa Maria in Trastevere.

On June 22, 1517, he was deposed as a cardinal by Pope Leo X, arrested, and placed in the Castel Sant'Angelo for his failure to disclose the assassination plot of Cardinal Alfonso Petrucci. The pope restored him to the cardinalate sed non ad vocem activam et passivam on July 31, 1517, then restored him completely on December 25, 1517.

Cardinal Sauli died in Monterotondo on March 29, 1518. He was buried in Santa Maria in Trastevere.
