Futurist painter born in Milan in 1907, engineer, he structured himself as a painter in the early 1930s, when he attended the Milan Polytechnic. In 1931 his first personal exhibition took place at the Sala Taveggia, in Milan, and after graduating in Engineering in 1932, he joined the movement led by Marinetti, with whom he immediately became friends. Thus began for him too the great futurist adventure with participation in all the most important initiatives.
Marinetti called him "one of the richest futurists of astonishing continuous invention, endowed with a mysterious and almost witch-like intuition".
