Giulio Cesare Casseri (1552, Piacenza, Italy – 8 March 1616, Padua, Italy), also written as Giulio Casser, Iulius Casserius, Giulio Casserio, Giulio Casserio of Piacenza, was an Italian anatomist. He wrote Tabulae anatomicae, probably the most important anatomical treatise in the seventeenth century, published in Venice, in 1627. The book contained 97 copper-engraved pictures, by Francesco Valesio, inspired by Odiardo Fialetti, Italian painter and former student at Tizian's school. The pictures in this book were copied in the works of his successor at Padua, Adriaan van den Spiegel (1578-1625)
