Emilio Vedova (August 9, 1919 − October 25, 2006) was an Italian modern painter, considered one of the most important to emerge in his country's artistic scene after World War II.
Vedova was born in Venice into a working-class family. After an initial formative experience within Expressionism, he joined the group "Corrente" (1942–43), which included other artists such as Renato Guttuso and Renato Birolli. In 1946 he co-signed the manifesto of the Fronte Nuovo delle Arti, which included several Italian artists who were to become famous. Vedova spent most of his life in Venice, where he taught at the Accademia di Belle Arti.
