Abstract

Food arouses a sensory synesthesia. This stimulated the fantasy of Futurists, they chased the convergence of formal arts, indeed. The cuisine could be a scope of global art, because the enjoyment of food involved five senses. Recipes are a demonstration of their experimentation with tastes, smells, sounds, tactile experiences and colours as well. They suggested provocatively food combinations that were unpublished and unlikely to stimulate the enjoyment of all the senses but taste. The formulation emphasizes the role of artists in the birth of a new vision of the alimentation, in which formal and chromatic aspects take over as interactive elements with the sight and the touch. The paper aims to investigate the role of colour in the synesthesia of the futurist cuisine that involved as much food as the rooms, documenting the importance of the futurist heritage on contemporary cuisine.
