About This Item

Torino, 1932-1934. Tabloid/folio (approx. 56 x 41.5 cm). Original self-wrappers; each issue 8 pp. Some browning to paper, toning, light scattered foxing, some issues with tears along fold lines, overall good condition. Twelve issues in eleven fascicules (Year I, Nos. 1 and 3-6; Year III, Nos. 3-9) of the important Italian Futurist architecture journal, under the direction of Fillia, a leader in the Futurist movement, with editorial assistance and contributions from other noted Futurist artists and figures including Alberto Sartoris, Enrico Prampolini, Nicolay Diulgheroff, Gino Levi-Montalcini, Mino Rosso, Gerardo Dottori, Filippo Marinetti, Walter Gropius, Le Corbusier, Bruno Sanzin, Emilio Odorizio, Pippo Oriani, Italo Lorio and many others, covering topics in domestic and international architecture including functional architecture, modern furniture design, aeropainting, Futurist landscape painting, public architecture, contemporary church architecture, African architecture, urbanism and ruralism, kitchen design, iron construction, Fascist architecture, new building construction in Spain, and many others. Illustrated throughout primarily from photographs.

Fillia (Luigi Colombo) helped to establish the Futurist movement in 1923, and quickly became the group's leader and its principal theorist. He published a number of journals including Futurismo, Ventrina Futurista, La Città Futurista, Stile Futurista, and La Città Nuova, co-authored the Manifesto of Futurist Cooking with Marinetti, and designed the Futurist Pavilion at the 1928 International Exhibition in Turin. An excellent and scarce example from the height of the Futurist movement; as of October 2023, OCLC locates only four holdings in the United States.
