Italian Futurism show continues in Venice

Exactly one hundred years after the publication in Le Figaro on February 20, 1909 of the Futurist Manifesto, signed by the ‘jeune poète italien’ Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice opened the exhibition Masterpieces of Futurism at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection to celebrate this revolutionary avant-garde movement. The exhibition featuring 24 paintings, 4 sculptures, 5 drawings and 2 woodcuts, runs through the end of the year, so if you have not seen it so far, don’t miss it when in Venice. This is a rare opportunity to see great works by the masters of Italian Futurism!
