Apollinaire’s copy of his famous manifesto, L’Antitradition Futuriste.

In the 14th Futurist manifesto, dated to June 29, 1913, Apollinaire urges a synthesis of "all the new tendencies in a perspective of coherence without unification and emulation without rivalry”. The four-page flyer which, according to Carlo Carrá, was designed by Marinetti, also contains provocative lists of oppositions: things to be suppressed and deconstructed versus things to be constructed, as well as a list of things “to shit on” (mer… de… aux) such as critics, professors, museums or academism, and a list of people who deserve “roses”.
