Festival dell’Arte Contemporanea in Faenza aims to be a place where art is given the time and space it deserves to be enjoyed, heard and understood. At the basis of the festival is the belief that, in order to understand contemporary art, it is crucial to slow down and take the time to ponder and reflect. In an age when art is force fed, the Faenza Festival aims to be the exception and to promote the creative exchange between artists and art lovers, between the ordinary and thought evolution.

Futurism was an art movement that originated in Italy in the early 20th century. It was largely  an Italian phenomenon, though there were parallel movements in Russia, England and elsewhere. 

The exhibition celebrates the birth of Futurism and displays a rich selection of works by Italian artists highlighting those aspects that characterized the movement in an effort to understand the distribution and penetration of the intellectual and artistic communities of the time within the Italian regions. Even after the centenary of the Futurist Manifesto, Futurism is considered still one of the most interesting modern art movements.
