Marinetti’s Pre-Futurism

Poesia magazine is the foreplay before the birth of Filippo Tommaso Marinetti‘s Futurism. And so, in 1905 in Milan, he founded Poesia, which quickly became his first of many offspring in the battle for free verse and then the Futurist credo to change the conventions of art and culture. 

Marinetti was devoted to literature. He advocated symbolist and romantic poetry in Italy (hence the symbolist artwork that adorned every copy of Poesia). And fancied himself a member of elite Italian literary circles. On February 20, 1909, published in Le Figaro the Fondazione e Manifesto of Futurism (Founding and Manifesto of Futurism), Marinetti assumed the role of the most important Futurist as organizer, polemicist, financier, editor,artist, poet and writer.
