About This Item

Carrara: Bottega d'Arte di Corrado Lattanzi/E. Bassani, [1934]. Oblong octavo (19 × 22.5 cm). Original decorative wrappers on blue stock; 42 pp. Not illustrated; bright blue typographic titles throughout; frontis portrait of Giuntini. Llight toning and water-staining to wrappers; handwritten ink inscription to front flyleaf; still about very good. Volume comprising three pages of introductory text by Marinetti, a six-page biography of Giuntini by Adolfo Angeli, and pages of parole in libertà by Giuntini. As noted in the Handbook of International Futurism, Giuntini "adopted the idea of 'sintesi' from the early years of Futurism and after 1928 wrote many piano pieces under the title 'Sintesi musicali futuriste'." Some of these pieces include Infinito, Linee aerodinamiche a 3000 metri, Allegria, Il mare, and Festa dei motori. He also helped author the 'Manifesto dell'aeromusica sintetica geometrica e curativa' with Marinetti. Together Marinetti and Giuntini also organized Futurist evenings of poetry and music.

In his introduction, Marinetti writes, "In questo volume che porta futuristicamente il titolo 'L'Universo in pugno', Aldo Giuntini scaraventa via baldanzosamente tutte le filosofie e tuta la storia delle filosofie per glorificare la religione futurista della velocità stabilendo come la velocità essendo nell'universo l'unica realtà che non ammette nè può ammettere contropartita (la stasi del tuto essendo inamissibile) è necessariamente divina, con linguaggio trasparente, indispensabile, senza analisi critiche, Aldo Giuntini risponde trionfalmente da futurista a tutti i filosofi e a tutti i fisici impastolati nelle biblioteche e nei laboratori."

Collezione Mughini 327.

A scarce volume by an important Italian Futurist figure; as of February 2022, OCLC locates three holdings of this work in North America.
