scapigliatura

Discipline: Art

(late 19th century)

Movement in Italian art and literature, centred around Milan and typified by the novels of G ROVANI.

A reaction against the UTILITARIANISM of bourgeois culture, its adherents attempted to revive the spirit of romanticism.

They rebelled against academic mannerisms, and artists such as L CONCONI, L BAZARRO, C TALONE and L PREVIATI painted in a loose Impressionistic manner close to divisionism.
