Ferrando Bertelli (c. 1525 - 1572) was an Italian engraver, living and working in Venice in the middle part of the sixteenth century. He is among the mot prolific of the map engravers collectively referred to as 'Lafreri School' mapmakers, whose elegant, rare, and distinctive maps are now among the most sought-after by collectors. Nothing is known of his education or training; he produced composite atlases in conjunction with Camocio, Forlani and Zenoi. His death in 1572 was almost certainly due to Venice's struggle with the plague, which appears to have disproportionately punished that city's printing trade.
