    During a period in which Italian design was considered "weak," the Turin Exposition was designed to stimulate the creative forces of Italian artistry in buildings and furniture by placing their works in direct competition with foreign designs. The exposition marked the debut of a new, original Italian style called Stile Floreale. The Palazzina was built to demonstrate this modern style.
