3. Gaetano Previati
Ferrara 1852 – Lavagna 1920
A painter noted as a talented disciple of Segantini, who became a great symbolist and went on to earn the title of “champion of the avant-garde.” He achieved fame with his works on the theme of motherhood, and his illustrations of The Betrothed and the tales of E.A. Poe. His tomb is extraordinarily modest: a simple slab on the ground with his name indistinctly engraved next to those of his family members.
