Futurismo ❤️❤️❤️ #Repost @fine_arts_followers (@get_repost)
#TullioCrali (1910-2000) was an Italian self-taught painter. At the age of fifteen, while studying into a technical institute, he discovered the #Futurism movement and so he started to be influenced especially by Giacomo Balla and Enrico Prampolini. In 1928 Crali flew for the first time. His enthusiasm for flying and his experience as a pilot influenced his art. In 1929, through Sofronio Pocarini, he made contact with #FilippoTommasoMarinetti, the founder of Futurism, and joined the movement. In the same year #aeropittura was launched in the manifesto "Perspectives of Flight", stating that "The changing perspectives of flight constitute an absolutely new reality....". Crali took part in many exhibitions, also the first aeropittura exhibition in Paris (1932) held by Marinetti.
After the Second World War, Crali lived in Turin, where he continued to promote Futurist events. Despite the ending of the Futurist movement with the death of Marinetti in 1944 and its Fascist reputation, Crali remained attached to its ideals and aesthetic. In 1959 he published the first post-war Futurist manifesto #Sassintesi (“Stone Syntheses”) where he advocated a new form of artistic expression using natural materials #futurismo #italianart
