Stefano Scolari

Stefano Scolari was an Italian cartographer active in the latter half of the 17th century. He had been trained as an engraver in Brescia but did most of his formal work from Venice, where he owned a famous shop in S. Zulian under the sign of the Three Virtues.

Scolari engraved, published, and sold both prints and maps but was especially known for re-issuing important maps from the 16th and beginning of the 17th century. Examples include Gastaldi’s three-sheet map of Lombardy (1561), Rosaccio’s four-sheet map of Tuscany (1609), and Greuter’s monumental 12-sheet map of Italy (1630).
