Antonio Zatta (1775-1797) was the most prominent Italian map publisher of the late 18th century. His Venice-based publishing company produced maps that mark an important transition from 18th- to 19th-century cartographic styles. He updates and redefines the traditional title cartouche by replacing the mythic elements common in earlier maps with more representative images.
