The Handbook is intended to offer a synthesis of the state of scholarship regarding the international radiation of Futurism and its influence in some twenty-five countries and twelve artistic disciplines. It acknowledges the great achievements in the visual and literary arts of Italy and Russia, yet at the same time treats Futurism as an international, multidisciplinary phenomenon that left a lasting mark on most aspects of the 20th C avant-garde. It will offer guidance to readers relatively unfamiliar with the reactions to Futurism in a given country or discipline and unlikely to speak many languages beside English. It will both be concerned with artists who were actively involved in the movement and with those who during a brief yet important phase in their career absorbed Futurist ideas and stylistic devices. These artists will be presented in the context of their national traditions, their international connections and the media in which they were predominantly active. However, the Handbook is not a biographical dictionary. It will function as a kind of geographical encyclopaedia of Futurism and address all genres and media in which the movement exercised a particularly noteworthy influence.
