Paolo Buzzi

Italy (1874—1956)
Despite his law studies and a comfortable career path, in 1935 Buzzi resigned from his job and turned to literature and poetry. He joined the Futurist movement by signing its manifesto as one of its very first members. He was co-editor of the Futurist review Poesia, founded by Marinetti and Benelli. He was also active in theatre: he wrote Sei sintesi sceniche to support Marinetti’s programme for a new Futurist theatre.
