Condensed sans serif font used by Marinetti for Dinamo

Hi there,

Can anyone identify this typeface, which was used by Marinetti in Dinamo magazine? It would have been in use around the turn of the century late 1800s/ early 1900s. Any ideas?:

I know that it isn't the following typefaces (although they are wonderful and similar):
Tungsten, Knockout, Heroic Condensed, Dharma Gothic, nor is it Tall Skinny Condensed



PS- Agree with other commenters: it is difficult to avoid posting in the "solved IDs" section. Hoping that this post ends up in the correct place this time…

It's busy work for us too.
I found two closes:
Flat It Type Foundry-Ryoichi Tsunekawa/Rama Gothic C Bold

Pomeroy, Ann/ETwentyFive

Given the age of the sample (turn of the 20th century) I doubt Tungsten etc. can be considered. I am thinking about a narrow variant of Monotype Grotesque (perhaps No. 77), while "RIVISTA" etc. could be a wider variant (No. 10?).
Another candidate for DINAMO is Advertisement Grotesque Condensed, also known as Narrow Grotesque, it had been around since 1865.

Thank you all so much. I think ETwentyFive is the winner (will work perfectly for this project.)
