Lucio Venna – nome de plume of painter and commercial artist Giuseppe Landsmann (1897-1974)

At just fifteen years old he left the lagoon city and his family, with the firm conviction of dedicating himself to painting, and in May 1912 arrives in the rich and culturally dynamic of Florence at the beginning of the century.

one of the first Futurist artists and an active contributor to the movement’s initiatives in the very first years after Filippo Tommaso Marinetti founded it.

In the early 1920s, Venna left both Futurism and painting, and focused entirely on commercial art.
