..., Aldo (pseud. of Aldo Giurlani ) ( 1885–1974 ). Florentine poet and novelist who made distinctively whimsical and ironic contributions to crepuscolarismo and Futurism . His privately published early poetry reworks symbolist and Crepuscular motifs, often in apparently childlike tones, but with a growing sense of absurdity and the grotesque. In Poemi ( 1909 ) he went against both symbolism and traditional views of the poet's public or moral role, by presenting himself as a circus performer and making personal suffering a matter of ...

...celebrating machines, speed, and even war. Futurism's base was Milan , and initially it was centred around the group associated with Marinetti's magazine Poesia (which included Paolo Buzzi ). It quickly attracted other writers seeking to break away from the past, like Aldo Palazzeschi , who did not entirely share Marinetti's poetics. Noisy, provocative recitations of Futurist compositions and various publicity-seeking stunts soon gained widespread attention. Futurism's anti-academic ideas soon spread to painting. The signatories of the two 1910 ...

... Corrado Govoni ( 1884–1965 ), who later became a futurist. Dying at 20, a consumptive Sergio Corazzini ( 1886–1907 ) declined the title of poet for that of a “weeping child” who “knows nothing but how to die.” Two poets of the first rank are customarily included here: Aldo Palazzeschi ( 1885–1974 ) exceeds all labeling and warrants treatment apart; Guido Gozzano ( 1883–1916 ) survived tuberculosis long enough to see the success of his Colloqui ( 1911 ). Gozzano’s mild irony blends with his mild yearning. Historically, “crepuscularism” and futurism ...

...a “post-Babelic” fantasy of ling. reunification, bears comparison ( see creationism ). Experiments contemporaneous to zaum’ in Italy include Aldo Palazzeschi ’s examples of a poetica del divertimento , playful poems in which infantile stutters and syllabic refrains are a refuge for the crepuscular poet discarded by the culture of modernity. Although he was briefly associated with It. futurism , Palazzeschi’s ludic sound has little in common with F. T. Marinetti ’s parole in libertà (words in freedom), a poetry that attempts to enact a synthetic ...

... I nuovi poeti futuristi ( 1925 ). Most futurist poetry, incl. Marinetti’s own early poetry, while futurist in theme, was closer in form to vers libre than to parole in libertà, e.g., the works of Ernesto Cavacchioli ( 1885–1954 ), Luciano Folgore ( 1888–1966 ), and Aldo Palazzeschi ( 1885–1974 ), the last a poet of the first magnitude, esp. in his later work. Others, however, some of whom were primarily painters, produced significant works in the parolibrist manner, e.g., Carlo Carrà ( 1881–1966 ), Giacomo Balla ( 1871–1958 ), Franceso Cangiullo ...
