Art movement that originated from Italy in the year 1947 when Lucio Fontana founded it with an intention to synthesize sound, color, movement and space into an entirely new type of art. The main ideas of the movement came from his manifesto that was published in 1496 where he spoke of "spatial art" to keep the spirit of the post war age. The ideas were further boosted by the five manifestos that followed the first one. Though his ideas were vague, his outlook was strongly influential probably because he was the first artist from Europe to promote art as a performance and gesture.
