Osvaldo Peruzzi, born in Milan on 25th May 1907, matured as an artist at the beginning of the thirties, when he went to the Polytechnic and met the futurists Munari, Prampolini and Fillia. In 1931 he held his first exhibition in the Sala Taveggia, in Milan, and after graduating in engineering in 1932, he joined the Futurist movement led by Marinetti, who soon became a close friend. From then on he was a constant presence at Futurist happenings. This book is a complete collection of Peruzzi's work, until his death in 2004 at 97, faithful to the end to the ideals of the futurist painters: from his famous, colourful supersonic aircraft to his passionate tributes to the film world.
