Correspondence with illustrations, 1915-1920.


Correspondence with illustrations, 1915-1920.

Series I comprises 1 letter from Francesco Balilla Pratella dated 9/6/1915, and 3 letters from Aldo Palazzeschi (n.d.). Balilla sends his "little book" Musica italiana asking for Cangiullo's opinion about it. Pallazzeschi writes to Cangiullo in 1915 about Marinetti's interest in his poetry, with the good news that Cangiullo's name will appear in "I Poeti futuristi" next year. He recommends the new publication "Lacerba." Two undated short notes inform Balilla about Pallazzeschi's movements so that they can meet or keep in touch.
