Enrico Prampolini was an Italian futurist painter and sculptor. He assisted in the design of the Exhibition of the Fascist Revolution and was active in aeropainting. Prampolini pursued a program of abstract and quasi-abstract painting, combined with a career in stage design, after studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Roma. He had close contacts with the representatives of the European avant-garde art, and with the Section d'Or, Dadaism, the Bauhaus, De Stijl, the Abstraction-CrÃ©ation group, with Pablo Picasso, Piet Mondrian, Wassily Kandinsky, and Jean Cocteau.
Prampolini occupied a place of his own in European abstract art, characterized by his deep concern for dynamism and organicism, which manifested himself in the cosmic visions and dreams of the 1930s and 1940s. In 1927 he founded the Futurist Theatre Prampolini. One year later he conceived the Futurist Pavilion at the Esposizione del Valentino in Turin. After the futurist experiences, he produced different materials and works, sometimes influenced by the visions of the microcosm.
