Giovanni Battista Nolli
Giambattista Nolli (1701 – 1756) was an Italian architect, surveyor, and mapmaker best known for his ichnographic plan of Rome, known as the Nolli Map. He was born in 1701 in Castiglione d’Intelvi near Como. As a young man, Nolli moved to Rome to train and work as an architect under the patronage of the Albani and Corsini families.
In addition to his hugely influential map from 1748, Nolli worked on the churches of Sant’Alessio on the Aventine Hill (1743) and Santa Dorotea in Trastevere (1751–1756).
