Francesco Sansovino

Francesco Tatti da Sansovino (1521–1586) was a versatile Italian scholar and man of letters, also known as a publisher. He was born in Rome, the son of Jacopo Sansovino, but soon moved to Venice then studied law at Padua and Bologna.

He is known for his 1581 work Venetia citta nobilissima et singolare, Descritta in XIIII. Libri, known briefly as Venezia Descritta. He was also a literary critic, writing in particular on Dante and Boccaccio.
