On February 20 th, 1909, on French newspaper Le Figaro appeared the first “Futurism Manifest” written by Filippo Tommasso Marinetti.
Marinetti, a poet, created a Vanguard trying to make a break with the past and the old traditions. The keys of Futurism ware the machines, the movements, the rapidity, the energy, all the time the look at the future and technological progress.
The Futurism, as a Vanguard Movement, took Literature and Visual Arts, and also has influences on Architecture and Music. The most prominent Italian artist of the time signed up the “ Manifesto” : Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà, Luigi Russolo and Gino Severini.
On the 100 Birthday of Futurism, Italy has started to celebrate, with different exhibition in Rome, Milano and Venetia.
Also in Buenos Aires, we will be able to see a panoramic exhibition of Futurism, on November at Foundation Proa.
