This work brings together the international conference proceedings on research into Futurist archives carried out at the Mart in Rovereto (13-15 March 2003) and which sprang from an increasing interest in the Italian Futurist movement and in the archives of important figures in the world of art and culture. The guiding objective was that of creating a dialogue between archival bodies, private and public institutions, foundations, artist heirs and other individuals who have conserved historic information on futurism, or they cultivate its memory or promote its critical analysis. The debate was enriched by numerous academics; they represent the first and most important group of users of this archival material. The diverse ways of collecting, ordering and cataloguing archival material highlighted the different choices in the organisation of research and the transmission of data: what emerged, in more than one case, was the desire and the necessity of greater communication and sharing of data between institutions and finally developing initiatives involving all parties, both public and private: in this sense, the Mart has conducted the first basic fact-finding inquiry via the mapping of Futurist archives preserved in Italy. Finally, the need to make full use of contemporary means of communication was expressed. This includes the internet, an inevitable tool for coordinating activities and exchanging and spreading information, though it does raise a number of problems concerning copyright management and proper use of information.
