Arrigo Minerbi (10th February 1881 - 9th May 1961) was an Italian sculptor.
Minerbi was the favourite artist of Gabriele D'Annunzio, for whom he produced "Luisa", a portrait of D'Annunzio's mother (as well as the tomb in the Chiesa di San Cetteo at Pescara, now Pescara Cathedral) and the bust of Eleonora Duse: both these portrait busts were exhibited at the Vittoriale degli Italiani of Gardone Riviera. In 1937 he was commissioned to produce the first (from the left) of five bronze doors for Milan Cathedral (on the theme ofThe Edict of Constantine), but he was subsequently forced into hiding at Gavazzana by racial persecution and only completed the doors in 1948.
