Notes from the Italian Art Society,
promoting the study of the architecture and visual arts of Italy, from prehistory to the present day.

Modernist Aroldo Bonzagni died on this day in 1918 in Milan, a casualty of the Spanish flu. He was only 31. After training at Milan’s Brera Academy, Bonzagni became associated with the avant-garde, signing the first Futurist Manifesto of 1910. He soon broke with the group, however, and focused his attention on depicting contemporary life, often with a sense of irony and caricature.
