Antique Maps by Natal Bonifacio (*1537 - 1592)

Natale Bonifacio, also known as Natale Bonifacio de Sebenico, was an engraver and wood cutter from Dalmatia who worked and lived in Venice and Rome. In the 1570s, he created engraved maps in Venice, which were subsequently featured in Civitatum aliquot insignorum et locorum magis..., initially published by Ferrando Bertelli in 1568 and later by Donato Bertelli in 1574. Starting in 1575, he established himself in Rome, where he prolifically produced numerous engravings encompassing both ecclesiastical and secular subjects. Notable among his works are the renowned 1580 map of Palermo, a perspective view of Acquapendente from 1582, and the 1587 map of Abruzzo. Bonifacio's exceptional engraving skills established him as the preeminent Roman topographer of his era.
