Although some of the Futurist’s ideas were extreme, I think it is interesting how some of their concepts have translated into modern times. The Futurists glorified violence and industrial warfare, even after experiencing the carnage of World War I. Similarly, even though people around the world lamented the effects of the war, World War II and the development of the atomic bomb followed not long after. Futurist architectural plans from the beginning of the movement look uncannily like modern skyscrapers. Despite the continued prevalence of pasta in the modern diet, there are modern chefs who focus on deconstructing food into avant-garde confections. At first glance, the extremity of the violence, misogyny, and disdain for nature of the Futurists could cause someone to reject their ideas as ridiculous, but their ideas, whether purposefully or not, have been incorporated to some extent into modern Western culture. However, the extremities of the movement should not be completely dismissed because they are important to address when studying the movement as a whole. That being said, the impact of the movement stemmed from the less radical ideas, striking a balance between the complete rejection of the natural world and the intense technological development that the Futurists proposed.
