Series I.  Manuscripts and Correspondence of Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, 1902-1944 1920s-1930s

Physical Description: 2 lin. ft.

Scope and Content Note

The majority of material is from the 1920s and 1930s, that is, from Futurism's second phase, and reflects FTM's sustained endeavor to reconcile Fascism with Futurism and to serve as impresario of both. Among the manifesto and essay manuscripts are minor, generally typewritten pieces, often on individual Futurist artists. There are two translated, excerpted versions of "Destruction de la Syntaxe," the dating of which is uncertain; one of these is part of a longer, translated piece on art and literature. The archive also includes FTM's open letters to Hitler and Mussolini, critiques of Einstein and Joyce, and reflections on political issues. Seven manuscripts are specifically identified as speeches; these are on topics such as Prampolini's portrait of Mussolini ("Ritratti futuristi del Duce"), the death of Bruno Mussolini, art, and aviation. Literary manuscripts include reprint proofs of "Re Baldoria," corrected proofs of "La Città Carnale," and typed or handwritten drafts of various minor short stories, scripts, and poems. Correspondence consists of letters, contracts, and receipts from FTM's publishers, letters from fellow Futurists, (scattered to 1944; approx. 100 items), and a group of love letters from women, including Ada Chio (1902-10; approx. 85 items). Among the miscellaneous material is a dossier of the National Honorary Conference for FTM (1924), and newspaper articles about FTM and Benedetta's visit to Sofia (1932).
