Fortunato Depero (Fondo, Trento, 1892–Rovereto, 1960).

Futurism, the artistic and literary movement that burst onto the scene—in 1914 with the outbreak of the First World War—in the form of the manifesto published by Filippo Tomasso Marinetti, has found its place in the history of art thanks to the radical nature of its ideas.

Depero experimented with a wide range of genres and supports, some of which he invented—like his celebrated quadri in stoffa, painting/tapestries made with textiles—and all of them he combined together: painting, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, typography, illustrated books, collages and photo-collages, scenography, figurines, kinetic and noise-producing ensembles, onomalinguistic compositions and free-word, lyric poetry for reading out on radio, in addition to attempting to produce a compendium of all the arts in his project New York, film vissuto.

Depero was a source of artistic and human energy in permanent evolution.
