“What does a man need to seduce women? He should have all the qualities of an Italian futurist”. On his return from the front in 1916, the electric Marinetti tells his relationship with the woman’s world in a delightful book that was never republished after the second edition of 1918. “A book of real life” as Marinetti himself says, and so much “fightful” that “it could only have been written in times of war”, as his friends Bruno Corra e Emilio Settimelli declare in the fond dedication at the beginning of this integral edition that includes also the polemic contribution of the futurist “letterate” as a response to Marinetti’s thesis put forth in the book. A provocative and irritating text on the eternal war of sexes, with a high level of sensuality, irony and of a shocking modernity, brilliantly presented by Carmen Llera, a woman of our times.
