Vincenzio Vangelisti (c. 1740-1798) was an Italian engraver. He was born at Florence. He visited Paris when young, where he became a pupil of Ignazio Hugford and Johann Georg Wille. Emperor Leopold II of Austria invited him in 1766 to Milan, where he became professor in the Brera Academy, and in 1790 first director of the School of Engraving instituted by that prince. He committed suicide, after having defaced his remaining copper plates. Among engravers, who studied under him, were Giuseppe Longhi, who succeeded him as professor, and Faustino and Pietro Anderloni.
Among his engravings are:
