Giuseppe Marri (1788–1852) was an Italian engraver.

He initially attended the Faentine School of Design under Zauli, and alongside Tommaso Minardi and Michele Sangiorgi.[1] He was then sponsored by the Faentine Congregation of Charity, to travel to Rome to apprentice as an engraver.[2] In 1818 he moved to Milan to work under the engraver Giuseppe Longhi.[3] In 1830, he returned to his native Faenza, to direct the School of Design, now directed by Saviotti, and now renamed the School of Drawing and Engraving. In 1849 he accepted a similar position in the city of Forlì.[4]
