Francesco Maggiotto or Francesco Fedeli (also called il Maggiotto) (1738 – 13 September 1805) was an Italian painter born in Venice.


He was the son and first trained with Domenico Fedeli. He continued painting in the style of his father, hence his nickname, but he could not fail to be influenced by the last generation of great Venetian painters, from Tiepolo to Pietro Longhi. He trained with Michelangelo Morlaiter. He was professor at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia.[1] Maggiotto painted history, religious, and genre pieces. His pupils included Lattanzio Querena, Giovanni Carlo Bevilacqua, Natale Schiavoni and Francesco Hayez. Maggiotto died in Venice.
