Gio Ponti and Editoriale Domus envisioned Centro Studi Triennale as a seven-volume series showcasing every facet of the 1952 Milan Triennale. Six volumes were published between May 1952 and November 1954: Volume One: Pizzi, Ricami, Tessuti, Paglia e Vimini [Lace, Embroidery, Fabrics, And Wicker Straw, 1952]; Volume Two: Oreficeria Metalli Pietre Marmi Legni Pelli Materie Plastiche [Jewellery Metals Stones Marble Wood Leather Plastic, 1952]; Volume Three: Vetri [Glass, 1952]; Volume Four: Ceramica [Ceramics, 1953]; Volume Five: Ambienti Arredati [Furnished Rooms, 1954 ]; and Volume Six : Il Quartiere Sperimentale Della Triennale Di Milano [The District Of the Experimental Triennale, 1954]. The planned Volume 5 titled Architettura dell’Esposizione Grafica e Pubblicita was never published; Ambienti Arredati was the replacement subject. The series ended with Volume 6 in 1954.
