Giacomo Bove (1852–1887) was an officer in the Royal Italian Navy who participated in Nordenskiöld's Vega expedition through the northeast passage, and in other expeditions in various parts of the world. He was, in part, responsible for drawing up plans for an Italian Antarctic expedition to depart in 1881. He died, at the age of 35, after an expedition to the Congo. A small museum in his honour has been established in his home village of Maranzana, Italy.
