Dal Lago, a little-known avant-garde painter, studied at the Academy of Decorative Arts in Monza and then began to follow the teachings of the Futurists; he described in two letters to Depero (in 1937) how he felt the need to move past traditional painting. He designed a handful of travel posters in the 1930s, as well as interiors for several hotels. Adriatico 52, Bolaffi p. 69.
