Antonio was the youngest of five brothers Gambarelli who had a shop (botega) on the corner of the Via del Proconsolo in Florence. The others were Domenico (b. 1407), Bernardo, Giovanni (b. 1417, d. 1496), and Tommaso (b. 1422). His principal work, the monument of the Cardinal Jacopo of Portugal, in S.

Antonio designed the tomb of the Duchess of Amalfi in the church of Monte Oliveto at Naples. He was assisted by Antonio Barocci da Milano on the tomb of Roverella in the church of S. Giorgio at Ferrara (finished 1475) and by Mino da Fiesole at Pistoia, which was begun by his brother Bernardo before his death.
