GUGLIELMO SANSONI "TATO" (1896-1974)
CAMICIA NERA. 1933.

A Futurist artist best known for his aerial view paintings and lithographs, Tato also dabbled in sculpture, ceramics, set design, writing and poster making. He published military themed drawings during WWI as a volunteer officer on the front. This image, undeniably Futurist in style and theme, was also used as a cover for Gioventu Fascista, "Fascist Youth," Year II N. 3 - January 30th issue.
