Settimia Caccini (6 October 1591 – ca. 1638, Italy) was an Italian composer and singer. She was the youngest daughter of composer Giulio Caccini and singer Lucia Gagnolanti. Her mother died when she was very young. She was the sister of Francesca Caccini, also a composer and singer, and Pompeo Caccini, a singer. Due to the level of musical talent in her family, Settimia started her musical education at an early age, going on to be a successful singer and composer in her own right.
