Giuseppe Maria Ficatelli or Figatelli (1639 – 3 September 1703) was an Italian mathematician and painter of the Baroque period.[1][2]


He was born in Cento, and pupil of Cesare Gennari, flourished in the latter half of the 17th century, and painted pictures for the churches of his native city.[3] He also published a treatise on Mathematics: Ristretto Aritmetico in 1675.[4] His sons, Paolo Antonio (1671 – 17 February 1724) and Stefano Felice Ficatelli (8 April 1686 – 5 September 1771), inherited his studio and were active local painters.[5]
