Republic of Italy, 20 Euro Cent 2002

The futurist sculpture "Forme uniche della continuità nello spazio" (Unique Forms of Continuity in Space) by Umberto Boccioni is what we see on this Italian 20-cent-coin. It is seen as an expression of movement and fluidity. Boccioni was one of the founders of Italian futurism and the first to apply the theories of futuristic painting on to sculpture. He fell in 1916 in the First World War (1914-1918).
