Viviano Codazzi (1604-1670 ) was an Italian painter of landscapes or vedute during the Baroque period, active mainly in Rome and Naples. He painted in a style influenced by a circle of Dutch painters active in Rome, known as Bamboccianti, including Pieter van Laer. He is best known as one of the earliest practitioners in Italy of painting architectural veduta of Rome and Roman ruins, both fanciful (capriccio) or realistic (veduta realistica).   more from wikipedia »
