The Atlantica team flies over Chicago
Alfredo Gauro Ambrosi
Oil on the table
This oil on canvas from 1933, belonging to the private collection of the Marinetti family until the acquisition of the work by the Cirulli Foundation, celebrates the myth of flight, surrounded by an aura of invincibility, also thanks to the feats of important Italian aviators. , from Balbo to De Pinedo, who reaped record after record in the 1920s: that of speed, that of height, that of distance. It is in this climate that the second generation of Futurists grows, born under the banner of "liberation from the earth". These artists often found themselves flying, “spiraling” over cities and in their art they recreate and reshape their new, grandiose and dynamic view of the world.
