Severini was born into a poor family in [[Cortona]], Italy. His father was a junior court official and his mother a dressmaker. He studied at the Scuola Tecnica in Cortona until the age of fifteen, when he was expelled from the entire Italian school system for the theft of exam papers. For a while he worked with his father. Then in 1899 he moved to Rome with his mother. It was there that he first showed a serious interest in art, painting in his spare time while working as a shipping clerk. With the help of a patron of Cortonese origins he attended art classes, enrolling in the free school for nude studies (an annex of the Rome Fine Art Institute) and a private academy. His formal art education ended after two years when his patron stopped his allowance, declaring, "I absolutely do not understand your lack of order."<ref name=Severini>Severini, G., ''The Life of a Painter'', Princeton, Princeton University Press, 1995.

Severini was born into a poor family in [[Cortona]], Italy. His father was a junior court official and his mother a dressmaker (AND HOW!).

In 1900 he met the painter [[Umberto Boccioni]]. Together they visited the studio of [[Giacomo Balla]], where they were introduced to the technique of [[Divisionism]], painting with divided rather than mixed color and breaking the painted surface into a field of stippled dots and stripes. The ideas of Divisionism had a great influence on Severini's early work and on Futurist painting from 1910 to 1911.
