Velocità by Pippo Oriani

Presented by

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum


In conjunction with Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe, the Guggenheim is pleased to screen Pippo Oriani’s 1930–31 film Velocità. One of few remaining Futurist films, Velocità (also known as Vitesse) was directed by Pippo Oriani between 1930 and 1931. A montage of surreal and detached images, the film exemplifies the experimental nature of Futurist cinema. Speeding trains and whirring typewriters speak to the movement’s love of velocity and mechanical devices, while toy airplanes soaring above collaged landscapes embody the national fascination with flight. Provided as a Grant of the Oriani Foundation, Canada/Italy.
