Futurism was an avant-garde movement founded in Italy during the early 20th century. It was heavily influenced by the emerging progressive concepts in art, technology and industrial design, architecture, literature and music. The Italian poet, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti is credited as one of the movements’ founding fathers and published the Manifesto del Futurismo in 1909. The Futurist Manifesto outlined the movements’ key philosophies of rejecting the past in exchange for modernization, and cultural and societal advancements.
