(Florence, 1890 and 1895 – there,1962 and 1957), artists and writers, came from a bourgeois family with ties to the Florentine artistic and cultural milieu. Great-grandchildren of the painter Giovanni Fattori, they collaborated from the beginning on the magazine “L’Italia futurista” with both free speech and drawings and caricatures. In 1919 they participated with several drawings in the Great National Futurist Exhibition at Palazzo Cova in Milan, which was later transferred to Genoa and Florence. In 1923 Neri partnered with Tipografia Bengaglia and set up the advertising studio “Creazioni Nerino,” engaging in the production of réclame sketches, wall posters, calendars, postcards, and pamphlets that retained their author’s Futurist imprint, while Vieri, after the Futurist season, abandoned drawing to devote himself exclusively to literary production. He contributes to “Solaria” and for the Florentine magazine’s editions publishes several works of fiction and collections of verse.

The Neri and Vieri Nannetti Fund is divided into the following sections: Correspondence, a small collection of letters signed by Marinetti, Vieri Nannetti and Settimelli; Manuscripts by Vieri Nannetti, dating from 1915-1916, when at the front, during breaks in the fighting, Vieri filled notebooks with words in the wild that would be published in part in “L’Italia futurista.” Drawings by Vieri Nannetti, partly exhibited in Milan at the Great National Futurist Exhibition; Advertising work by Neri Nannetti; Miscellaneous and photographs, including the manifesto “What is Futurism.
