Giuseppe Civelli (June 2, 1816 - March 7, 1882) was an Italian publisher, printer, geographer, and engineer active in Milan during the middle part of the 19th century. Civelli was born in Lombardy, Italy, apparently of modest origins. He established a printing house in Milan in 1840. Ten years later, having achieved considerable success with ambitious cartographic publications, he was able to open additional printing houses in Ancona and Turin. When the capital of Italy moved to Florence in 1865, he established a large printing house there to capitalize on government contracts. This process was later replicated in Rome. He died in Florence, but his successors continued to publish under his imprint, Stabilimento Tipografico giĆ  C. Civelli well into the 20th century.
