On the occasion of the 140th anniversary of Umberto Boccioni’s birth, the documentary traces the career and art of the futurist genius through the encounters that changed his life: Marinetti, Severini, Balla and Princess Vittoria Colonna.

Why does Boccioni’s sculpture still fascinate the public so much today? Visionary, brilliant, restless: the Italian artist revolutionised modern sculpture.
