Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Filli (3 October 1904 - 10 February 1936) was the name adopted by Luigi Colombo, an Italian artist associated with the second generation of Futurism. Filli was born in Revello. He established the Futurist movement in Turin in 1923 at the age of 19 with a group which included Nikolay Diulgheroff, Pippo Oriani, Enrico Alimandi, Franco Costa and the sculptor Mino Rosso. Filli quickly became the leader of the group and its principal theorist. He published the art reviews: Futurismo (Futurism) (1924), Ventrina Futurista (1927), La Citt Futurista (The Futurist City) (1929), La Citt Nuova (The New City) (1930-1934), and Stile Futurista (Futurist Style) (1934-1935) with Enrico Prampolini. His work in the mid-1920s shows the influence of Prampolini. After 1928, Filli 's work shows increasing subjectivity. He became an exponent of L'Aeropittura, (Aeropainting), the dominant Futurist style of the 1930s which applied the experience of flight to the depiction of landscape aerially; the world was no longer seen from the perspective of the person on the ground but as if from an aeroplane.
