Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. “Lo Splendore geometrico e meccanico nelle parole in libertà: manifesto futurista”. Lacerba, nº 6, Firenze, 1914

“Over the next year and a half, Lacerba published some of the most important Futurist manifestos of the period (…) At the creative level, too, Lacerba offered its readers some of the most revolutionary works of the time: poetry by, among others, Palazzeschi, Soffici, Marinetti, and Francesco Cangiullo, in styles ranging from more conventional free verse to words-in-freedom compositions that would often break the two-column layout and explode across the page like verbal deflagrations; black-and-white reproductions of paintings and drawings by Paul Cézanne, Picasso, Aleksandr Archipenko, Boccioni, Carrà, Severini, and Soffici; and even musical scores for noisetuner compositions by Russolo and by Balilla Pratella.”
