Giuseppe Rosaccio (1550-1620) . Interesting engraved map of Italy. Lot of activity in the sea with many vessels and marine creatures. There are 35 vignettes on the upper right side showing old and modern Italian fashion as well as an interesting cartouche in the middle of the map.
This artistic reproduction of a vintage map was made using modern graphic procedures, but obtaining the results found in the antique copperplate engraving technique, as one can easily find out by lightly rubbing his/her finger on the map. This map, which is an exact reproduction of the original antique, is printed on cotton paper panels which are glued and mounted on a cotton cloth background "a stacchi" (slightly separated from each other), in order to allow for folding and easier transport. Finally, map is water-colored by hand making it a truly unique piece, worthy of the original old print.
