Nicolas Beatrizet (1507/15-1573) was a French printmaker, who was working in Rome around 1540-1565. Between 1547 and 1560 he produced plates directly for Lafrery, but also other plates later came into the hands of Lafrery

Tommaso Barlacchi (c. 1500-after 1550) Italian publisher, printer & engraver. Working in Rome from 1541 to c.1550. He published engravings by Beatrizet, Vico and Bonasone. Lafreri acquired some of Barlacchi's plates.
