A lover of speed, Marinetti had a minor car accident outside Milan in when he veered into a ditch to avoid two cyclists. He referred to the accident in the Futurist Manifesto: He discussed a new and strongly revolutionary programme with his friends, in which they should end every artistic relationship with the past, "destroy the museums, the libraries, every type of academy".
