Caption: Detail of 16th century map of Liguria. Detail from the map of Liguria commemorating Christopher Columbus and depicting Neptune, the Roman god of the sea, with his chariot. Liguria is a coastal region of Italy. The map of Liguria is contained in the Gallery of Maps in the Vatican Museum. The Gallery of Maps holds maps which were commissioned between 1578 and 1580 to show the regions of Italy and territories of the church. The maps are based on the work of Ignazio Danti, a 16th century Italian priest, mathematician, astronomer and cosmographer, and are an important record of 16th century geography.
