Francesco Filippini (Brescia, 1853 - Milan, 1895), was a painter Italian. He is considered the master of painting Italian Impressionism as opposed to Impressionism French Claude Monet. For this by many, Filippini is considered for Italy as Monet is considered for France.

Filippini is the father of the masters of Italian Impressionism art. He was a friend of Claude Monet and Édouard Manet, because he had gone to Paris to research and reflect on art with them.

He was the same age as other painters who used to meet in Paris, such as Paul Cézanne, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas and many other colleagues.

His most famous works were Peasants at rest of 1886, Laguna Veneta (Venice Lagoon) of 1892 which is the first response to Monet's way of painting, from which he was not influenced but with his own artistic identity, it was he who influenced all the landscape painters of the time and later in Italy.
