Text from the exhibition curator:

Giovanni Morando Visconti, born probably in Curio (Switzerland), in 1652, was an important engineer corps officer in the Habsburg military, architect and cartographer. His career began in the 1680s, during the Habsburg – Ottoman wars.
One of his major works, the “Mappa della Transilvania”, printed in Sibiu, in 1699, can be found today as part of the collections hosted by Brukenthal National Museum.
General public is offered the opportunity to see all 13 original maps that are part of the “Mappa” on the occasion of the exhibition.
