Hashemite city rising up on account of a creative movement in Italy (4,6)


I believe the answer is:

arte povera

'creative movement in italy' is the definition.
(Italian art movement of the 1960s and 1970s)

'hashemite city rising up on account of a' is the wordplay.
'hashemite city' becomes 'Petra' (the Hashemites are the royal family of Jordan).
'rising up' is a reversal indicator (in a down clue, letters go up).
'on account of' becomes 'over' (both can mean 'because of').
'petra' backwards is 'artep'.
'artep'+'over'+'a'='ARTE POVERA'

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
