Inspired by New York's Guggenheim Museum which has organized the largest, most important exhibit on Futurism, Italian Futurism, 1909 – 1944: Reconstructing the Universe, the Museo presents an illustrated lecture by Christopher Atwood, PHd candidate in Italian Studies at UC Berkeley.

Italian Futurism called for a sharp break with the traditions of the past. "We want to destroy all the museums, libraries and academies," Marinetti wrote. Modernity, machines and motor oil – not Renaissance masters – inspired this generation of writers and artists. This lecture explores the artwork created by Italian Futurists.
