Its interesting reading Lancia PR before the Aurelia - even if written by someone else, you get a sense of what they were thinking about at the time.

And so to make things even less clear, I have GG's pictures referenced as the 1939 for the light car and 1949 for the dark car but The Italian Tribune of 23rd March 2016 in its' History of Italian Automobiles attributes the Batista and Sergio "anti-salon" incident to the 1946 show.

Hemmings Daily also attributes the incident to 1946.

More research is clearly needed.

checked the back of the pictures. From the Detroit Public Library, Automotive History Collection, Cameron Peck Collection, no date. Came with the brochure, but that might just be that they were filed together.

It would seem from the attached that Pininfarina were allowed inside for the 1947 show.

Pininfarina debuted the original Cisitalia 202 it at the Villa d'Este Gold Cup show in Como, Italy, followed by an appearance at the 1947 Paris Motor Show. Unlike the prevailing automotive designs of the time, the 202 was composed of a flowing, single surface, in which the fenders, hood, headlights and body all flowed as one. A total of 170 largely handcrafted models were built between 1947 and 1952.
