To be a Futurist in Italy of the early 20th century was to be young, modern and insurgent. It emphasized and glorified themes associated with contemporary concepts of the future, including speed, technology, youth and violence, and objects such as the car, the aeroplane and the industrial city. This lecture will examine the historical sweep of the movement, from its inception in 1909 through its demise at the end of World War II. Free registration begins October 27th.
