Abstract
The purpose of this article is to investigate the crucial role of Futurist visual poetry as starting point in the creation of an interconnected and expansive net of interdependencies between traditional artistic branches and new media in the Westernworld. At the beginning of the 20th-century, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti and his colleagues launched their systematic program of action as a result of the impact of new technologies on their creative process. They coined neologisms as "polyexpressivity" or "multisensoriality" to define the essence of their cultural productions based on the equivalence and the mixing of media to stimulate and implicate the participant in the construction of a total artwork. Futurist contribution constitutes a milestone in the field of intermedial studies, and it can help determine the idiosyncrasy of net.art and other innovative cultural expressions in the digital age, a new period of transition
