In the 1948 winter, Fede Cheti, a creator of furnishing fabrics, opens in Milan the exhibition Lo Stile nell’Arredamento Moderno, inviting the most notorious architects of the moment.
The projects of Albini, Buffa, Chiesa, Lacca, Mollino, Parisi, Ponti, Rava, Sottsass Jr., Ulrich and others, will be appreciated for their fancy and sophisticated realization and they will be considered ambassadors of the Italian style in the world.
