Umberto Boccioni (1882-1916). Genius and Memory
Palazzo Reale, Milan - until July 10, 2016
Boccioni is the Futurism, Futurism is Boccioni. Here is what can be deduced through the halls of Palazzo Reale in Milan, in which they are currently exposed many works he created and dedicated to him. It is known that the futurists provocatively criticized all forms of art past and present, paradoxically claiming that a speeding car is more beautiful than the Nike of Samothrace. But this masterpiece of Hellenistic, which in itself is a celebration of dynamism, has in fact suggested the mobility of the plastic "Unique Forms of Continuity in Space", a splendid example of sculpture-machine-robot.
