The series is composed of a collection of 227 letters, which for the most part were sent to Boccioni. Also letters between the Boccioni family members are to be found, together with letters received by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, primarily on the occasion of Boccioni's death, and letters sent by Gino Severini. The miscellaneous section at the end of the series includes various documents and single letters sent by other individuals.

The material is arranged according to the list of letters provided by the dealer, which can be found in folder 1, with letters between the family members first, and then the rest of the correspondence, roughly organized alphabetically by name of the sender. The finding aid is organized by name of the main correspondents, with a miscellaneous section at the end with other documents and a few letters, which are not related to any of the correspondents previously noted.
