Tommaso Cuccioni (1790-1864) was a photographer, printmaker, and publisher. He initially trained as an artist engraver. Cuccioni began photographing the subjects of his engravings, which included such Roman antiquities as the Temple of Vesta, the Column of Trajan, and the banks of the Tiber. After his death, his firm continued to produce photographic views and to reprint his negatives (Encyclopedia of Nineteenth Century Photography, p. 354).
