Futurism News Bulletin, xvii

  • Review of the Futurist exhibit in Argentina.
  • Version of opera ‘Tosca’ set in Fascist Rome features the creation of a Futurist Madonna:

The painter Cavaradossi (Jeffrey M. Hartman), Tosca’s lover, is not just painting a Madonna; he is painting a mural of an ostensibly Futurist Madonna. Thus, added to the crime of aiding an escaped political prisoner is the implicit charge of “subversive art” (despite the fact that the Futurists tried so hard to ingratiate themselves with the Fascists).

  • Watch a discourse on the Wolfsoniana in Genoa on Rai Tre from March 27, 2010.
