Exhibition vs Scaffolding

Edoardo Persico, tireless animator of debates and research in arts, has designed, in Milan, during the first half of the thirties, a series of exhibition facilities – from advertising Metal construction (1934), placed under the Vittorio Emanuele Gallery, to the Hall of the Gold Medals for Aeronautics Exhibition (1934), both in collaboration with Marcello Nizzoli – for the general public.
