Umberto Boccioni was perhaps the most versatile and impassioned of the Futurists—the literary, political, and artistic movement that flourished in Italy during the first half of the 20th century, proclaiming a revolutionary, spectacular style of life.

Boccioni developed into a theoretician and leading figure of the futurism movement and wrote numerous manifestos. In 1915, when Italy became embroiled in the First World War, the patriotic Futurists, including Boccioni, joined the army as volunteers.
