Guns in action


We couldn’t miss in our artistic journey some Futurist painting: here’s Cannoni in azione, a 1915 painting by Gino Severini. Don’t be surprised by the French texts: indeed Italian Futurists were very influenced by French culture. Moreover, this work may have been painted before Italy’s entry in war (May 24, 1915), and therefore seen as a celebration of the power of French artillery.
