Bernardo Cennini (Florence, 2 January 1415 – Florence, 1498) was an Italian goldsmith and printer. He was one of the very first printers in Italy.
After working with Lorenzo Ghiberti on the gates of the Florence Baptistery, in particular on the Gates of Paradise, he was among the first to apply himself to the technique of printing with movable types invented by Johannes Gutenberg of Mainz. He deduced the principles simply by analysing the final product, printed books. On his press he produced the first book to be printed in Florence.
