Illustrated profusely throughout from drawings and photographs. Some slight scattered toning, a few small marginal tears, some small areas of loss or repaired tears along horizontal creases. Folio. Original self-wrpps. La Spezia (Casa d'Arte) 1933. In 1933, F.T. Marinetti called La Spezia "La Terra dei Vivi", underlining the city's ability to renew and reinvent itself. 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 August 2019, WorldCat locates only two holdings in North American institutions.
