marinett“We want to sing the love of danger, the habit of energy and rashness”. With these words, Filippo Marinetti (1866-1944) gave birth and shape to the Futurist art movement.

On the occasion of the avantgarde movement’s centenary, it was 1909 when the founder of Futurism spread its revolutionary ideas to the world through the pages of the Le Figaro, Milan pays tribute to this artistic forerunner, who advocated a detachment from tradition.

The collection presents a number of portraits and caricatures of the artist, along with some masterpieces by Marinetti himself, Umberto Boccioni and Giacomo Balla.

The exhibition also offers a documentary section including futurist manifestos, photographs, catalogues and postcards enabling visitors to really get to know this artistic movement which so changed the Italian and international artistic and cultural scene.

If you are looking for an afternoon of culture in Milan, don’t miss Marinetti – a real revolutionary force in terms of thought and art.

Until June 7th
