Visconte Maggiolo (1478 – 1530), also spelled Maiollo and Maiolo, was an Italian cartographer and sailor.
In 1527, he created a map depicting Verrazzano's travels. This map had a major error, as Giovanni did not accurately describe the North American continent. This error was not to be fixed for over a century.
