Bonaventura Berlinghieri (fl. 1228–1274) was an Italian painter from Lucca, Italy, of the Gothic period. He was the son of painter Berlinghiero Berlinghieri and the brother of Barone and Marco Berlinghieri.
Bonaventura painted several panels and wall-paintings at Lucca, in 1235 and 1244. He is most famous for an altarpiece dedicated to the life of Francis of Assisi. This altarpiece is painted in tempera on wood in the Byzantine or maniera greca style. It depicts the stigmata as well as several scenes from the saint's life. This altarpiece is housed in the Church of San Francesco of Pescia where it can be seen today.
