This chapter discusses the Partito Politico Futurista, which is a modernist literary movement, specifically focusing on its trajectory and the last years of futurism's ‘first’ or heroic phase. It emphasises that a different form of experimentation emerged in Filippo Tommaso Marinetti's ‘literary’ work as he turned to law as an entity of aesthetic play.
