Fillia (Luigi Colombo) - La danza dei sensi
Oil on cardboard - Not signed - 1927

For all collectors interested in "Italian Futurism", FILLIA is an essential artist whose original works are ultimately not so abundant on the market.

In this respect, this original composition by FILLIA, which dates from 1927, is very attractive, for the reasons discussed below, it could find its place either in the large collection of a bibliophile, or in a specialized set of modern paintings from the 1920s-1930s:

1. In 1927, this original composition immediately became essential in FillIa's work, since it was chosen to illustrate the cover of the book "LA DANZA DEI SENSI", well known by bibliophiles, and published in Turin, by editions "SINDICATI ARTISTICI" (See illustrations below)

2. The publication of this painting by FILLIA, in 1927, is to be considered as a period "In tempore non suspecto", i.e. it was published at a time when it can be considered that it was more for artistic objectives than commercial ones.

In this respect, the low print run of this book, together with the text of Giovanni ROTIROTI, is clear proof that the distribution was then carried out by a limited committee. quite an unusual way, since this painting was intended for publication, there is, on the bottom of FILLIA's work, a large handwritten note in pencil on two lines: "THE DANZA DEI SENSI , Di Giovanni ROTOROTI", in a previously unseen graphic, which was not used for the cover of the book.

4.A relatively recent proof of the importance of this original composition by FILLIA is that it features in the large book "IL FUTURISMO E LA GRAFICA" by Giovanni Fanelli and Ezio Godoli, published in September 1988 by "Edizioni Di Comunità , MILANO".

This work is presented on its original cardboard and also illustrated with the mat that was used by the Milanese gallery that sold it some twenty years ago.

In short, it is clear that this original work by FILLIA, (an author almost never offered for sale on CATAWIKI ), presents many qualities and peculiarities that make it very attractive and worthy of entering a beautiful collection, of which it can help enhance the prestige.
