Title : NOVELLE COLLE LABBRA TINTE
A hearty anthology of unpublished novels
Maker of product: F.T.Marinetti / Domenico Cammarota
n° pages: 276
This hearty anthology was published for the first time in 1930 at the height of Marinettis worldwide artistic fame. The volume consists of both unpublished texts and work recovered from various sources such as the daily newspaper, "La Gazzetta del popolo" to which Marinetti contributed from 1928 to 1944. The anthology was assembled by the author with the introduction of minimal variations in terminology. Despite the myth of Marinetti as a serious writer of at times illegible manifestos, the novels are particularly resonant today as joyous examples of the tradition of Futurist narrative and its socio-economic character. The genre originated from modern, consumerist erotic literature and attracted both famous and lesser known authors in the 1920s and 1930s. Characterized by brilliant and daring prose, these stories win over a reader today with their unsettling topical significance. The texts intuitively evoke the hyperbolic language of advertising as well as the horror poetics found in modern cinema and literature. The works of this anthology confirm the undeniable quality of Marinettis literary creations.
