Simone Pinargenti was an influential figure during the Renaissance in Venice. Born on an unknown date and location, Pinargenti gained recognition as an Italian cartographer and publisher. He is particularly renowned for his work “Isole che son da Venetia nella Dalmatia et per tutto l’arcipelago fino a Costantiopoli” (1573), which in Lafreri-style showcased various maps and views of islands and regions in the Venetian Republic and Dalmatia.

Pinargenti’s publication provided valuable insights into the geography and topography of these areas during that time. While not much is known about his personal life, his contributions to the field of cartography continue to be appreciated as significant historical references.
