Donatto Rascicotti (also written Rasciotti, Rasicotti, and Rosigotti) was a Venetian printer, publisher, and merchant born in Brescia in the middle of the 16th century. He was active between 1572 to 1598, primarily in Venice, but probably working out of Bologna and Rome as well.
Rascicotti can probably be identified with the Donato Resegata “stampatore di disegni,” arrested in Rome in 1577 and accused of stealing drawings from the studio of Antonio Lafreri. In 1598, he gained permission to publish by the Doge of Venice and had a shop at the Ponte dei Baretteri. Almagià describes Rascicotti as an editor of maps engraved by Giovanni Battista Mazza and Bertelli.
