Giuseppe Rovani (12 January 1818–26 January 1874) was an Italian novelist and essayist.
Rovani was born in Milan. He was known for criticism of historical novels of the Romantic style, which were 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 in the Italian Risorgimento and was a forerunner of the Milanese Scapigliatura.
In 1959 he was part of a consortium of writers who co-edited the newspaper Gazzetta di Milano.
