Pseudonym of Renato Righetti (1905-1982). Italian artist. Born in Verona. “A man’s character is revealed by the tie he wears,” he wrote in the Futurist Manifesto on Italian Ties, signed along with Ignazio Scurto in 1933. A member of the Second Futurist Movement, he designed an anti-necktie, made of a very light, shiny, durable metal.
