Edilizia Moderna was a system for construct buildings, using a base plate, wooden pillars and cardboard doors & walls. It was made in Italy by Cartoccino in Monza, most likely around 1929 till 1933.

There seem to be 2 or 3 different series, each with varying box sizes. The higher the box number, the bigger the base plates. Base plates identified so far: 3×3, 3×4 or 5×8. Also panel textures differs and some are open and some closed.
Some system characteristics
Here a short list of some system characeristisc and how it’s retrofitted into the virtual LeoCAD library:
Thickness: 5.5 [mm]
|Single color pieces|
|Columns||Wood||Single color pieces|
Thickness: 1.0 [mm]
|Typical wall panel||95 x 70 [mm]|
|Bay size||~75 [mm]||75 [mm]|
|Draw line every X studs||3|
|Snap XY||5 [mm] (1/4 Stud)|
|Snap Z||1 [mm] (1/20 Stud)|
I had the opportunity to measure box No. 4.
Here an overview of the parts found & imported from box n0. 4:

Building in LeoCAD
I like the floor system, it’s almost similar to Pulko. Here there are only rectangular strips with holes, holding the columns together. And placing rectangular floor plates in-between, a closed floor is created. Way more simple and needing the least amount of unique parts, while it’s still flexible for creating different floor layouts.
