[Publishing information based on MARC record in Yale Library OPAC.] "Turin 1902" was published as a portfolio of 50 plates in 1902. In the preface Leon Macht notes that the purpose of the book is to "reflect, as a summary of the creation types, in broad lines the character of the Turin exhibition." The plates include a sample of the important exhibition buildings, mostly by the Italian Art Nouveau architect Raimondo D'Aronco, examples of the work of various interior designers, including J.M. Olbrich, Victor Horta, and Peter Behrens, and plans of the exhibition grounds. "The Prima Esposizione Internazionale d'Arte Decorativa Moderna (Turin, 1902) brought to Italy the best international examples of Art nouveau, including work by Victor Horta, Joseph Maria Olbrich, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Tiffany. Although there had been a few examples of Art Nouveau (Italian: Stile Liberty or Stile floreale) influence before 1902, it was the spectacular exhibition buildings themselves (destroyed) by Raimondo D'Aronco and Annibale Rigotti that pointed the way to a coherent style.
