This tome of Futurism was published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Palazzo Grassi. Following two short essays by Pontus Hulten is a massive collection of images, many in color, that track the evolution of the movement. This resource makes it particularly easy to see the incorporation of cubist techniques and the development of a specifically Futurist aesthetic. Primarily focused on paintings, the catalogue is extensive enough to also present sculpture, architectural drawings, costumes, tableware, and even a Futurist musical score. Another exceptional feature is the built in, heavily illustrated, “Dictionary of Futurism” that provides a multitude of lengthy artist biographies and photographs, reaching far beyond the scope of other print and web resources. The dictionary also explains other art movements that influenced and were influenced by the Futurists, as well as key concepts expressed in Futurist manifestoes. Futurismo & Futurismi is easily one of the most exhaustive print resources that is specific to the subject.
