(b Reggio Calabria, 19 Oct 1882; d
Sorte, Verona, 17 Aug 1916).
Italian sculptor, painter, printmaker and writer. As one of the principal
figures of FUTURISM, he helped shape the movement’s revolutionary
aesthetic as a theorist as well as through his art. In spite of the
brevity of his life, his concern with dynamism of form and with the
breakdown of solid mass in his sculpture continued to influence other
artists long after his death.
