The purpose of this article is to look closely at the cultural relationships be- tween the Ottoman Empire and the Republic of Venice. The research draws upon one of the cartographic exchanges frequently occurring between the two States (from the 16th to the 17th century). Specifically, we are focusing on the heart-shaped Map that was engraved in Venice on six blocks of wood, in Arabic script and in Ottoman language. Such heart-shaped projection, invented by Jo. Werner ajji Ahmed Map, of Nuremberg in 1514, was re- used by Oronce Finé in 1536 for a World Atlas reproduced by G. P. Cimerlino in 1566, and is still displayed at the Biblioteca Marciana in Venice.
