Giuseppe Boschetto (1841–1918) was an Italian painter, active mainly in Naples, painting often ancient Roman subjects, a thematic often characterized as Pompeian or perhaps, more aptly Neo-Pompeian.

He exhibited at the 1880 Turin exhibition, a painting depicting Santa Lucia in Naples. At the 1883 Esposizione Nazionale di Belle Arti of Rome, he exhibited The Death of Socrates. Like Camillo Miola, he applied Realism to historical painting. Other paintings were The proscriptions of Sulla and Agrippina spies on the Senate (exhibited 1877 in Naples).[1]
