The Grand Hotel Majestic "già Baglioni" of Bologna, a hundred years ago mingled with Futurism - one of the most famous avant-garde movements in the world. On Thursday, March 20th, the Grand Hotel Majestic "già Baglioni" is giving life to futuristic nights again. Starting from 11:00 pm the historical Lounge Cafe at the Hotel becomes "Cafè Marinetti", in tribute to Filippo Tommaso Marinetti who was the initiator and tireless promoter of the twentieth century avant-garde movement, with a special guest, Francesca Barbi Marinetti, nephew of the futurist poet and writer. in the At the basement of Grand Hotel Majestic a Member of the Futurist Centennial Committee and an art critic Beatrice Buscaroli will lead guests through a journey of that famous night between 20 and 21 March 1914 that housed the "Legendary Futurist Exhibition" organized by Marinetti. 
 
This date is chosen not by chance. On the night of 20 and 21 March 1914 more than 500 visitors were mobbed at the basement of the most luxurious and prestigious Hotel of that time, to admire the works of five young 'so-called' futurists, fellows of the Academy of fine arts, who exhibited fifty works labeled by the newspapers of that time as 'avant-garde': Giorgio Morandi, Mario Bacchelli (the brother of the "Mulino del Po" author), Osvaldo Licini, Severo Pozzati, who will then become Sepo and Giacomo Vespignani. Marinetti, who loved to stay at Baglioni, organized that "crazy" 24-hour show together with Francesco Balilla Pratella, Umberto Boccioni, Luigi Russolo and Giacomo Balla. The event entered immediately the art history. From that moment the Hotel Baglioni became one of the headquarters of futurism, avant-garde and unforgettable evenings. 
 
The evening program is rich. Starting at 11:00 pm, Beatrice Buscaroli, Professor of contemporary art and a member of the National Futurist Committee, will take the guests on a short trip along the Futurist universe, through anecdotes and curiosities. And a rigorously Futurist appetizer will breathe in the atmosphere of that distant time at midnight. 
 
Don't miss the Futurist Dinner at 8:30 pm, at the Carracci restaurant, with an original menu on the basis of authentic futuristic recipes. This is a unique event of its kind: for the first time after the war extravagant Futurist taste experiments are combined in an entire menu, from starters to coffee. The recipes include: Alaskan Salmon at the rays of the Sun with served with Mars sauce by Bulgheroni, Ascending Rhombs by Angel Caviglioni, Carneplastico by Fillìa, Skewered Carnations by Farfa and of course the Inventina - by master Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. 
 
The Grand Hotel Majestic "già Baglioni" honors this tradition of being the official Futuristic location par excellence and thus closes the long journey started with the presentation of the two iconic works of the Futurism movement: the Testament of the musician by Francesco Balilla Pratella and Venezianella and Studentaccio - the last unpublished manuscript of Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. The project was followed by the presentation of a book "Futurism in Bologna" – the first volume of the "Goodnight books" series by the Duetorrihotels group. It includes goodies and unpublished writings of the movement history, which had its very first appearance in Bologna – by the “Futurist Manifesto”, published in "Gazzetta dell'Emilia" on 5th  February 1909, 15 days prior to the official date of birth known as 20th  February 1909 with the publication of "Le Figaro" in Paris. This exclusive booklet will be given to all participants of the event.
