Modernist Aroldo Bonzagni died on 30 December 1918 in Milan. A casualty of the Spanish flu, Bonzagni 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.
