In 1909, the Italian poet and editor F.T.Marietti published an aggressive manifesto demanding writers and artists reject the classic art of the past and "celebrate the dynamic technology of modern city life." This call to arms led to the Futurist Movement whose followers melded their romantic involvement with modern technology to create art that would represent movement in reaction to the static art of Cubism. This anthology of the most significant Futurist writings and unusual documentary illustrations appear here in book form for the first time. Item #26056
