Abstract

[Futurist leader Filippo Tommaso Marinetti is the focus of Ernest Ialongo’s study of the impact of the military on art. Ialongo argues that another way of looking at Marinetti’s works is to focus on his vision of Italy as depicted in the person of the soldier and Italian society at war. He draws our attention to the fact that a recurring theme in Marinetti’s work is the soldier as the uncomplicated and dutiful citizen who answers the call of the state to defend the nation and puts aside whatever differences separated him from his fellow Italians in civilian life, most specifically class and region. When Marinetti writes about society more generally, he similarly focuses on the issue of duty and sacrifice. Consequently, such themes bind Marinetti’s work from the Liberal to the Fascist era.]
