The nucleus of historical Italian design from the 1930s with Palanti and Ulrich aroused as always great interest, just as the cornerstones of the Decorative Arts, where Fausto Melotti joins the already mentioned Ponti and Caccia Dominioni. Carlo Scarpa's studies for the project dedicated to the Negozio Olivetti in Venice were also particularly intriguing and did attract the audience's attention.
