Fortunato Depero and the space of Futurist theatricality

Chiesa, Laura

The presentation is a selective reading of Fortunato Depero’s writings and experimentations
highlighting his spatial Futurist inventions. Depero’s inventions are theatrical, in the sense that
Marjorie Perloff suggests considering Futurist poetics "theatrical," as the "space between the
arts." His ‘plastic complexes’, as proposed as early as 1915, are a free play and new
configuration of abstract plastic constructions.
