Gerardo Dottori (Perugia, 11 November 1884 to 13 June 1977) was an Italian Futurist painter. He signed the Futurist Manifesto of Aeropainting in 1929. He was associated with the city of Perugia most of his life, living in Milan for six months as a student and in Rome from 1926-39. Dottori's' principal output was the representation of landscapes and visions of Umbria, mostly viewed from a great height. Among the most famous of these is Umbrian Spring and Fire in the City, both from the early 1920s. Dottori was born in a working class family, losing his mother when he was eight years old. He was admitted as a young man to the Academy of Fine Arts in Perugia, employed at the same time by an antique dealer. In 1906 he worked as a decorator in Milan, where he was able to visit museums and exhibitions. In 1907, after six months, he returned to Perugia because he could no longer find work. He resumed his studies in 1908, mixing in avant-garde art circles in Florence. In 1910 he began work with the magazine Defense dell'Arte.
