[Venice]  Venetia

Late example of Stefano Scolari's map of Venice, first published in 1597.

The map is based upon the Bernardo Salvioni (1597) plan of Venice. This gorgeous bird's-eye view of Venice gives a taste of how this city existed during the seventeenth century. Buildings are shown as well as several traveling vessels including gondolas and ships. Other topographical features are also featured.

An index found at the bottom half of the item shows numbers, and names landmarks and other places of interest. As well, two insets below the plan show "La Plazza di S. Marco" and "Il Novo Ponte di Rialto", both rendered with stunning accuracy.

Stefano Scolari (1598-1650) was a little-known publisher who was known for his cartographic work, done primarily after Dutch originals. He worked primarily in Venice.

Stefano Scolari was active between 1644 and 1687. He was a designer, engraver and editor from Brescia, although he practiced his trade in Venice. His shop, in S. Zulian under the sign of the Three Virtues, was one of the best known in seventeenth-century Venice. He engraved, printed, and traded in prints, particularly, maps. He specialized in the re-issue of important maps including Gastaldi's map of Lombardy and the 12-sheet map of Italy by Greuter.
