Description: Milano: Mudima, 2011. 24cm., hardcover, 623pp. prof. illus., most in color. Italian text. Summary: The book concerns the origins of the Stella d'Italia (Star of Italy), the most ancient symbol of the Italian land that Marinetti evoked when he found the Futurist movement. Familiarly named "lo stellone", the Stella d'Italian has been painted by Balla, Depero, Rosai, Sironi, Conti, Monachesi, Soffici and many other futurists, but it appears also in 19th century paintings, during the Risorgimento, attesting to a myth that goes back to an ancient political and geographical tradition when Italy identifies itself as the 'land of sunset'.
