Filippo Tommaso Marinetti's presence was very important for the Como area. Firstly, Lake Como is linked to the poet since he died on December 2, 1944 in Bellagio. Another thing in common with the city of Como was the figure of the architect Antonio Sant'Elia, to whom a monument was dedicated in the autumn of 1930. Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, who gave words of commendation to Sant’Elia, presided over the inauguration ceremony of the the architect from Como’s work and a monographic exhibition of the work. There were not only relationships of esteem, just remember Marinetti's indignation at the inauguration of Giuseppe Terragni's Casa del Fascio, considered a monument “with the taste of the past”. He also met the abstract artists from Como, Carla Badiali, Cordelia Cattaneo and Carla Prina in 1942, when they were presented in the Futurist Hall of the Venice Biennale; moreover, his friendship with Mario Radice led him to frequent the group of abstract artists from Como on a regular basis. The poet had a close bond with the Lake Como area, where he had developed several friendships over the years with intellectuals and politicians, and where he went to study and deepen the artistic currents and promote Futurist art.
