Scarce libretto of a strange Futurist one act opera, with talking a tree (Euphobia), shrubs and airplanes among the characters, some of which are actually human --aviators, soldiers and natives -- even if they intone like actors in a Greek tragedy. This oddball propagandistic work, more an oratorio than opera, celebrates war ("sweet war"), aviation and territorial conquest -- the things that cast a spell on so many Futurists, and which were the essence of Fascism. Three copies located on OCLC of this libretto brochure, at Berkeley, Harvard, and one in Italy. (There are copies of the printed music elsewhere). The work was first performed at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in 1937. 8vo. 20 by 13 cm. 23 pp. Dedicated to Mussolini. Pavolini, like many adherents of the Futurist Movement, came to embrace Fascism. In his case, he had a brother who was a prominent member of the Fascist heirarchy. After the war, Pavolini found success as a screenwriter. Age toning to the leaves.
