Futurism, an Italian literary born art movement, emerged in 1909 and is generally known for its occupation with depicting movement and its glorification of war and machines. Looking for other sources of inspiration after the devastation of World War I, the Futurists turned to the intimate senses, among others smell, in the 1920s and 1930s. They were revolutionary in their organization ofscented poetry recitals and created aromatic toys, perfumed sculptures and odoriferous artists’ books. This chapter discusses the possible (re)construction of this lost volatile heritage and how to make sense of historical scents.
