Futurism (Italian: Futurismo) was a movement in the arts that originated in Italy in the first two decades of the 20th century. Futurism glorified modernity, speed, technology, youth, and violence. Key figures were the poet and art theorist Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, the composer and inventor Luigi Russolo, and the painter and sculptor Umberto Boccioni. Although Futurism was largely an Italian phenomenon, parallel movements emerged in Russia and in other countries. Web resource here.
