The job of Aloi included, beside the choice of the works
to publish, the grafic impagination, the careful choice of the iconographicds material,

("Nuove architetture a Milano") Aloi got the card ad Honorem from the
"Collegio degli Architetti".
These books are still used for researches and accademic studies about design and aesthetical taste of that period.
