This chapter elucidates and explores the context and background of the futurist machine. A chronological overview of the semantics of the machine across history paves the way to a discussion of conceptual discourses and questions about machine technology in modernity. Taking Marxism as a point of departure, this chapter further explores the industrial and migratory underpinnings of Italian modernity. The machine is situated here within the framework of an international, interpenetrated modernism. The chapter completes the discussion in the Introduction, exploring the legacy, background and trajectory of the machine in futurismo from the official inception of the movement in 1909.
