Palazzo Blu

Conceived by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti’s in his 1909 manifesto and published in Le Figaro on February 20th that year, for the next 30 years Futurism generated works across multiple art forms. It did so because of its powerful anti-conformist, anti-Catholic and anti-nostalgic soul, and its ability to portray the entirety human experience. The exhibition presents a unique reconstruction of Futurist visual art, with over 100 works by the greatest artists of the movement. Twenty-nine lenders, including public museums and private collections, generously contributed loans of paintings, drawings, sculptures, objects, toys and designs. The exhibition also aims to prove how the greatest futurist artists were able to remain faithful to the theories outlined in their manifestos, and how these were translated into disruptive and innovative works. This why the exhibition narrative developed by curator Ada Masoero is broken down into sections, each named after an artist’s manifesto.
