Italian anatomist and embryologist, surnamed Acquapendente from the episcopal city of that name, where he was born in 1537. At Padua, after a course of philosophy, he studied medicine under Gabriele Falloppio, whose successor as teacher of anatomy and surgery he became in 1562. Among his pupils there was William Harvey, who later elaborated the cirulation of the blood. From the senators of Venice Fabrici received numerous honors, and an anatomical theater was built by them for his accommodation. He died at Venice on the 21st of May 1619. His works include De visione, voce et auditu (1600), De fortnato foetu (1600), De venarum ostiolis (1603), De formatione ovi et pulli (1621). His collected works were published at Leipzig in 1687 as Opera omnia Anatomica et Physiologica, but the Leiden edition, published by Albinus in 1738, is preferred as containing a life of the author and the prefaces of his treatises.
