Ferruccio Rontini (Florence, 1893 - Livorno, 1964) was an Italian painter.
From a young age he revealed his talent for drawing and painting and was encouraged in this direction by his paternal uncle Alessandro Rontini. In 1909 he moved to Livorno with his whole family. It was in 1909 that Ferruccio enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, graduating with full marks in 1915 as Professor of Figure Drawing.
He immediately dedicated himself to painting from life, following the personal inclination towards nature that would accompany him throughout his life.
He became a friend and pupil, together with Renuccio Renucci, of the Leghorn painter Ugo Manaresi, becoming one of the founders of the Gruppo Labronico in 1920. His initial Macchiaioli style did not evolve until the 1940s.
On 25 September 1964, Professor Ferruccio Rontini died suddenly.
