Pozzoserrato was one of the first wave of artists from the Netherlands to travel to Italy, but unlike contemporaries such as Paulus Bril, he chose to base himself primarily in the Veneto, rather than in Rome. He came into contact with Joris Hoefnagel, with whom he was an important contributor to Braun and Hogenberg's epic project to record all possible town and cities for their topographical magnum opus, the Civitates Orbis Terrarum (published in six volumes, between 1572 and 1617).
