The Libro de catafalchi, tabernacoli con varij disegni di Porte, Fenestre et altri Ornamenti di Architettura published by the Roman Giovanni Giacomo De Rossi’s printing house “Alla Pace”, is a collection that summarizes the contributions of various authors and engravers elaborated in the chronological period between the first half of the 16th century and the second half of the 17th. Analyzing these engravings is possible to date the volume between 1667 and 1691. A significant matter concerns the identification of the author of eight engravings depicting new models for doors, windows and ornamental motifs which have been related to some drawings kept in the Kunstbibliothek in Berlin already attributed to the sculptor and architect Ludovico Scalza. The comparison with an engraving kept in the Biblioteca Estense in Modena and signed by Tarquinio Ligustri has made it possible to attribute to the well known painter from Viterbo both the engravings of the Roman volume and the drawings of Berlin, which would indicate the existence of a larger editorial project subsequently unrealized.
