Salvator Buemi was the son of a shoemaker. His first known work is a medaillon called "Angelo" (1885). When he was twenty he moved to Rome to study. From 1890 onwards he took part in many exhibitions. He specialised in bronze sculptures of famous persons and war heroes.
His monument for the Masotto Battery that fell in the Battle of Adwa in Ethiopia in 1896 is in Messina. He also created the bust of Giacomo Natoli for the cemetery in Messian in 1896. His sculpture "Rebe; Angel" can be found in Havana, Cuba. In 1910 his monument for Giordano Bruno was inaugurated in Narni.
Buemi suffered from a disease that was incurable at the time and he died in 1916 in Rome.
