Ignazio Revelli (1756:1836):
Ignazio Revelli was an Italian furniture maker and marquetry craftsman from Vercelli Italy. He worked from 1791 for the royal court in Turin, and by 1800 had been joined in his workshop by his son Luigi (1776–1858). They produced pictures representing views of famous monuments, prisons and architectural perspectives.
