Remembering Filippo Marinetti (December 22, 1876–December 2, 1944)Greg Johnson
Those on the Right who believe that modern art is always “decadent” need to come to grips with Italian Futurism. In commemoration of the birthday of Filippo Marinetti, the founder of Italian Futurism and one of the prophets of Fascism, I would like to draw your attention to several writings on this website.
About or making substantial reference to Marinetti:
- Kerry Bolton, “Filippo Marinetti,” which has also been published in his book Artists of the Right: Resisting Decadence (Portuguese translation here)
- Mark Dyal, “Life is Always Right: Futurism and Man in Revolt” (Portuguese translation here)
- Ted Sallis reviews Mark Antliff’s Avant-Garde Fascism.
- Alex Graham, “Fascism, Futurism, & Aviation”
Marinetti is briefly discussed in this interview with Giordano Bruno Guerri, “’68 was Invented by D’Annunzio.”
There are two excellent English language editions of Marinetti’s principal works:
- Selected Poems and Related Prose, trans. Elizabeth R. Napier and Barbara R. Studholme (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2002)
- Critical Writings, ed. Günter Berghaus, trans. Doug Thompson (New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2006)
