The author of the map Vincenzo Maria Coronelli (1650 - 1718) was one of the most renovated cartographers and globe makers, active mostly in Venice. He is known by his atlases such as Atlante Veneto and Corso geografico universale (where this map was published), as well as by his monumental globes,made for Ranuccio II Farnese, Duke of Parma, and Louis XIV. Coronelli’s maps are today considered as great classics of cartography.
