In the 1920s the island was a popular meeting place for the followers of Futurism, an art movement that tried to abolish traditional art and establish a new, modern art. In the 1950s the first luxury holidaymakers came to the island, which had a lasting effect on it and today it is one of the most popular holiday islands of the rich.
