The neoavanguardia ("New Vanguard") was an Luigi Malerba, Germano Lombardi, Francesco Leonetti, Alberto Gozzi, Massimo Ferretti, Franco Lucentini, Amelia Rosselli, Sebastiano Vassalli and Lello Voce among others.

Neoavanguardia poets, inspired by modernist English language writers such as Ezra Pound and TS Eliot and the Italian poet Emilio Villa, were opposed to the crepuscolarismo (intimistic view) which had characterized Italian poetry in the 20th century, and, above all, to what they defined as 'neo-capitalistic' language. The result was quasi-parodistic language that often led to meaningless verses (non-significanza) and the so-called "art as a plaything in itself."

The movement originated as the Gruppo '63, which was founded in a hotel at Solunto, near Palermo, mostly by writers who had collaborated with the Il Verri literary magazine. The conference included a theatre spectacle on works by Balestrini and Sanguineti among others. The appearance of the movement spurred fierce polemics in the Italian literary world: they were accused of being "irrational formalists", "dangerous Marxist revolutionaries", "late Futurists" or the creators of a "renewed Arcadia".
