The engineer Tiburzio Spannocchi, Knight of the Order of Malta, owed his fame to a large extent to his ability to draw. The aim of this study is to highlight his versatility as a draughtsman in the context of the military engineering of the era. He described the feats of Marco Antonio Colonna and the Marquis of Santa Cruz, and drew fortifications and territories on the frontiers of the kingdoms of the Spanish monarchy for Phillip II and Phillip III. Before he died he desired to publish his writings and his drawings, which explains their presence in some of the collections in Florence and Rome. The secrecy with which the monarchy guarded these drawings to prevent them from being seen by its enemies in the end prevented their publication. Some of the unpublished drawings from his travel notebooks which explain the process of this engineer’s projects are also analyzed.
