Giuseppe Rovani (1818 - 1874) was an Italian novelist.

Born in Milan, he distinguished for his criticism against the historical novel, of Romantic inspiration, which was popular in Italy at the time and whose stereotypes and old fashioned plots he pointed out. He wrote Lamberto Malatesta (1843), Valenzia Candiano (1843) and Manfredo Pallavicino (1845-1846).

He took part to the Italian Risorgimento and was influenced by the Milanese Scapigliatura.

His masterwork is the novel Cento Anni (1859-1864) which, together with Ippolito Nievo's Confessioni di un italiano, had an important impact on the evolution of Italian novel.

Rovani died in Milan in 1874.
