Ardengo Soffici’s newly edited letters, which span his pre- and post- Futurist years, are addressed to Serge Férat (cubist painter, artistic director of Les Soirées de Paris) and his lover (and ex) the Baroness Hélène d’Oettingen. I imagine some of these letters contain details of his bar brawl with Marinetti, Boccioni and Carrà at Giubbe Rosse and speak of his involvement with Lacerba.
