Collection of ephemera relating to the event. The Triennale is an exhibition of modern decorative and industrial art and modern architecture; This material, in colour, for the QT 8 exhibition in 1951. [In the immediate post war years the Triennale tackled the problem of reconstruction by promoting, with Piero Bottoni, the building of the experimental QT8 area, in Milan's Monte Stella district.] There are five further items [ two are duplicates - advertising pamphlets for Montin Restaurant, Venice and an interior design shop in Taormina Studio Casa Silva] and include the ticket/brochure for the event that provided visitors with the opportunity to fill in a questionnaire about what they had seen and thought. All in very good condition. The event is still held today as an icon for cultural and economic life, the engine of an important international dialogue between society, the arts and industry. Main item in English, the others in Italian. From the collection of George John Subiotto, without signature.
