Italian Cartographers

The research carried out so far has had the goal of bringing out the names, the events and the work  of Italian cartographers, specifically the “minors” ones, those remained in the shadows compared to the great figures known to everyone. That’s why the records of the “major” cartographers appear synthetic, compared to the bibliography available. The definition of cartographer has been understood in a broad sense, applying it to all the figures that, in the past, intervened in the geographical maps production (of all types and variable scales), in the most disparate roles. Even the nationality hasn’t been considered in narrow way but considering all Italian people or who worked for a long time in our country.
