“(…) A roaring car that runs like a machine gun is more beautiful than the Winged Victory of Samothrace (…) there is no higher beauty, apart from fight. A work can not be a masterpiece, if it does not carry a sign of aggression in itself (…). We want to destroy museums, libraries and academies of all kind, and fight against moralism, feminism and every kind of utilitarian cowardice.”
Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Futurist Manifesto (1909).
