Giuseppe Bardi (fl. c. 1790 - 1810) was an Italian engraver active in Florence during the late 18th and early 19th century. Bardi is best known for his engravings of classical sculpture and Tuscan landscapes. As an engraver Bardi was an exceptional master whose work exhibits a delicate three dimensionality resulting from his freehand combination of multiple engraving techniques. Though his corpus of cartographic work is limited to a few scarce plans of Italian cities, each map is a masterpiece that bears heavy detailed scrutiny. His work as a pictorial engraving best translates with regard to his masterful approach to topographic representation. Due to the scarcity of his material Bardi's work rarely appears on the market and is little known.
