Carlo Francesco Dotti (1670–1759) was an architect from Bologna.



Carlo Francesco Dotti was born and died in Bologna, where he became one of the main protagonists of the late Baroque style.

His most famous work is the Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca, Bologna, which is raised on a hilltop above the city, consisting of a church topped by an elliptical dome, with extensions leading to two pentagonal pavilions.

In Bologna in the first half of the eighteenth century he worked on the church of San Donato, the university library and several palaces in the center. In the Palazzo Davia Bargellini he executed the monumental staircase around 1730. he was also known for the arch of Meloncello (1721), the altar of Ivo of Kermartin in San Petronio Basilica and the Renazzo parish church, in Cento, Province of Ferrara. A street is named after him next to the road that leads to the Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca, just outside the center of Bologna.
