Amico, Bernardino a Franciscan monk of Gallipoli, in the kingdom of Naples, was prior of his order at Jerusalem in 1596. During a sojourn of five years in Palestine, he sketched and accurately described the sacred spots; and on his return to Italy he published in Italian this interesting work, entitled Trattato delle Piante e Imagini de' Sacri Edifizj di Terra-Santa, Disegnate in Jerusalemme, etc. (first printed at Rome, and then at Florence in 1620). The engravings of this work, which gave the designs of the sacred buildings in the Holy Land,,were executed by Callot. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
