This chapter aims to show how Futurist and modernist European movements, which in the Old World represented the cultural substratum of the war spirit, were understood, absorbed, cannibalized, and swallowed from those Brazilian movements that were looking for an identity for Brazil since independence a century before. Paradoxically, Italian Futurism was fully projected as the martial spirit of progress, which was used to claim a “native” identity. Starting from these points, the chapter will analyse the issue of the relationship among different cultures in the light of the anthropophagical dialectic.
