Published to accompany the exhibition Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe opening at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 2014, this catalogue considerably advances the scholarship and understanding of an influential yet little-known twentieth- century artistic movement. As part of the first comprehensive overview of Italian Futurism to be presented in the United States, this publication examines the historical sweep of Futurism from its inception with F.T. Marinetti’s manifesto in 1909 through the movement’s demise at the end of World War II. Presenting over 300 works created between 1909 and 1944, by artists, writers, designers and composers such as Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni, Anton Giulio Bragaglia, Fortunato Depero, Gerardo Dottori, Marinetti, Ivo Pannaggi, Rosa Rosà, Luigi Russolo, Tato and many others, this publication encompasses not only painting and sculpture, but also architecture, design, ceramics, fashion, film, photography, advertising, free-form poetry, publications, music, theater and performance. A wealth of scholarly essays discuss Italian Futurism’s diverse themes and incarnations.

Italian Futurism was one of the most dynamic, controversial and unpredictable movements in early modern art. The artists of Futurism celebrated the revolutionary furor and breakneck technological pace of life in the nascent 20th century, embracing its contradictions and its frequent descents into violence. This expansive overview is the first undertaking of its kind in the United States, and should prove an eyeopener. (Howard Halle Time Out New York)
An enormous exhibition of the Italian Futurist movement occupies the snail-shell of the Guggenheim Museum this spring and summer. The Futurists were dedicated to motion―but not the meditative pace that Frank Lloyd Wright’s ramp imposes on the viewer; more the revving of a Lamborghini, or better yet a Ducati motorcycle, relentlessly powering up, up, up and away, its engine knocking, spewing exhaust, mowing down everything in its path. The Futurists believed in the machine, in making a great big fuss, in being young. For a brief moment, they were arguably the most influential aesthetic provocateurs in the world. (Jonathan Galassi The New York Review of Books)
'Italian Futurism'...provides a refreshingly expanded view of the movement's trajectory. (Ara H. Merjian Artforum)
'Italian Futurism, 1909-44: Reconstructing the Universe' traces the history of the multidisciplinary movement, which celebrated all things fast, robust and mechanical, from its founding manifesto in 1909 to its end after the Second World War. (Julia Halperin The Art Newspaper)
The Italian Futurists saw themselves as soldiers of speed and mechanics, fighting in the name of progress. (Charles Curkin W)
'Italian Futurism, 1909-1944: Reconstructing the Universe' aims to examine paintings and sculptures that have long been recognized as modernist masterpieces alongside works of architecture, design and pure public spectacle that fueled the dream of a total Futurist art.
