Part manifesto, part artistic joke, this is a provocative work about art disguised as an easy-to-read cookbook. Here are recipes for ice cream on the moon; candied atmospheric electricities; nocturnal love feasts; sculpted meats. Marinetti also sets out his argument for abolishing pasta as ill-suited to modernity, and advocates a style of cuisine that will increase creativity. Although at times betraying its author's nationalistic sympathies, The Futurist Cookbook is funny, provocative, whimsical, disdainful of sluggish traditions and delighted by the velocity and promise of modernity. Filippo Tommaso Marinetti was born in 1876 to Italian parents and grew up in Alexandria, Egypt. He studied in Paris and obtained a law degree in Italy before turning to literature. In 1909 he wrote the infamous Futurist Manifesto, which championed violence, speed and war, and proclaimed the unity of art and life. Marinetti's life was fraught with controversy: he fought a duel with a hostile critic, was subject to an obscenity trial, and was a staunch supporter of Italian Fascism. Alongside his literary activities, he was a war correspondent during the Italo-Turkish War and served on the Eastern Front in World War II, despite being in his sixties. He died in 1944

Selected poems and related prose by F. T Marinetti( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The volume begins with Marinetti's early lyrical works, poems that exemplify styles and themes that he later reacted against in his own manifestos. It continues with his poems of battle. In which Marinetti used the language of machines and explosions to express his view of poetry as reportage from the front: "Words in Freedom," in which he declared war on poetry by destroying syntax and spelling and by experimenting with typography; and finally love poems to his wife, Benedetta, in which he returned in part to subjects and forms that he had previously rejected. The volume includes a prefatory biography of Marinetti written by Luce Marinetti as well as a critical review by Paolo Valesio of Marinetti's accomplishment as a poet."--Jacket

Il Manifesto del futurismo (vedi testo) fu scritto da Filippo Tommaso Marinetti e pubblicato in forma di declamatoria per fornire una raccolta concisa di pensieri, convinzioni e intenzioni dei Futuristi il 5 febbraio 1909. Il Futurismo è un grande movimento antifilosofico e anticulturale di idee, intuiti istinti pugni calci schiaffi specchiatori purificatori innovatori e velocizzatori creato il 20 febbraio 1909 da un gruppo di poeti arditi italiani geniali. Fra le tante definizioni io prediligo quella data dai teosofi: I Futuristi sono i mistici dell'azione . Infatti i Futuristi hanno combattuto e combattono il passatismo sedentario sotto tutte le forme: prudenza diplomatica, logica pessimistica, neutralismo, tradizionalismo, culto del libro, biblioteche, musei ... I Futuristi hanno adorato e adorano la vita nella sua colorata e tumultuosa varietà illogica e la sua bellezza muscolare e folle. Armati di coraggio temerario e innamorati di ogni pericolo, essi arricchirono l'arte e la sensibilità artistica col succo e con le vibrazioni di una vita impavidamente osata, vissuta, voluta. Creare vivendo, talvolta contaminando, affermare, lanciarsi, battersi, resistere, riattaccare, lanciarsi di nuovo, indietreggiare mai, marciare non marcire.--//--//--//--The Manifesto of Futurism, Italian: Manifesto del Futurismo, written by the Italian poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, initiated an artistic philosophy, Futurism, that was a rejection of the past, and a celebration of speed, machinery, violence, youth and industry; it also advocated the modernization and cultural rejuvenation of Italy. This manifesto was published well before the occurrence of any of the 20th Century events which are commonly suggested as a potential meaning of this text. Many of them could not even be imagined yet. For example, the Russian Revolutions of 1917 were the first of the sort "described" by article 11, yet the first of those occurred eight years after the Manifesto's publication. The effect of the manifesto is even more evident in the Italian version. Not one of the words used is casual; if not the precise form, at least the roots of these words recall those more frequently used during the Middle Ages, particularly during the Rinascimento. The founding manifesto did not contain a positive artistic programme, which the Futurists attempted to create in their subsequent Technical Manifesto of Futurist Painting (1914). This committed them to a "universal dynamism", which was to be directly represented in painting. Objects in reality were not separate from one another or from their surroundings: "The sixteen people around you in a rolling motor bus are in turn and at the same time one, ten four three; they are motionless and they change places... The motor bus rushes into the houses which it passes, and in their turn the houses throw themselves upon the motor bus and are blended with it."
