Giovanni da Gandino (died after 1479) was a dominican inquisitor.

He entered the Order of Preachers in the convent of S. Domenico in Bologna on 27 March 1460. In 1470 he was prior of the convent S. Corona in Vicenza. Then he was transferred to the convent of Chioggia and finally (1474) to the convent of S. Stefano in Bergamo.

In 1476 Master General of the Order of Preachers Leonardo Mansueti appointed him inquisitor of Brescia and Bergamo, but dismissed him on 7 December 1479 because of illnesses and "consequent inability to preach".
