The sketch on the left was Mario Calderara idealized notion of a seaplane (in contrast with the heavily-strutted, triple-pontooned idrovolante that he actually built).

The 'Elicottero Marchetti 1912' is obvious but I'm not sure about that date. I suspect this to be Marchetti's contentious 1922 freelance design for a Regia Marina observation helicopter.

here is a Beltrame Colibri tail-first canard light aircraft ...
Perhaps appropriately for such a small airplane, Milan-based Quito Beltrame was best known for producing flying models - as the Fabbrica Italiana Aeromodelli Quito Bertrame.

BTW, photo 2 in Reply #9 was taken at the 1937 Milan Fair - Salone internazionale aeronautico. This display was listed as a " Modello dell'areo "Colibrì" ... which I assume to mean a mockup: http://www.lombardiabeniculturali.it/fotografie/schede/IMM-u3010-0003703/
