One hundred years after the publication of the founding manifesto of Futurism, there is a need to reassess the whole movement from its Italian roots to its international ramifications. In wide-ranging essays based on original research, John London’s edited collection examines both the original context and the cultural legacy of Futurism. Areas covered include Futurism and Fascism, the geopolitics of Futurism, translating Futurist texts and Futurism, feminism and the motorcar, meanwhile one section of the volume analyses attempts to perform Futurist ideas on stage. The book has a significant international relevance because of the wide-reaching nature of Futurism and diverse backgrounds of the contributing scholars. Offering unique new scholarship, all the contributions comprise new research on the Futurist movement and its legacy.
