One of Umberto Boccioni's most famous paintings is The noise of the street enters the house in the Sprengel Museum in Hanover, Germany which featured an exhibition on futurism in 2001. Other important works include the 1910 painting The City Rises, and the 1913 futurist bronze sculpture Unique Forms of Continuity in Space, which is reproduced on the Italian 0.20 Euro coin.
Boccioni died after falling off a horse.
