Bruno Munari was born in Milan in 1907, he began artistic work at a very early age in the cultural area of Futurism: in 1927 he exhibited for the first time at collective exhibition "33 Futurist Painters" at the Galleria Pesaro in Milan. At the same time he pursued various activities - art-director, publicist, illustrator. In 1930 he produced the "Air Machine", from which came the "Useless Machines", anticipating his interest in the destruction of the traditional work of art. He progressively moved away from the influence of Futurism and more generally from the historic avant-garde which he took as a pretext to develop an extremely personal and singular style. After the war he began work designing products, lay-outs and above all toys for children, for which he is best known by the general public. All his work is characterized by a pedagogic finality which is explicit in his passionate interest in the development of childrens creativity through play but is also expressed in research intro the most diverse opportunities for wider and non-Θlitist communication: he writes for newspapers and weeklies, illustrates and produces many books.
