This artwork was immediately acknowledged as the paradigm of distinction between Futurists and Cubists. The coiche of the title ' Elasticità' for the representation of a mounted knight galloping against an urban background, reveals the new interest in the properties of matters, and particularly in the elastic capacity of objects and muscle, anticipating the muscular interpretation of movement typical of the sculpture 'dynamisms'.
