Lamanna 1935 and the name of the magazine L'Aerotecnica sounds Italian
or French ... I dont know but the illustration comes from:

http://www.twitt.org/PreBurnelliPatents.html
 
The same drawing was published in in R.Storck "Flying Wings", with
the additional pictures of what may have been a wind tunnel model.
Designed by Ciro Lamanna under the designation "Tutt Ala CL" in 1935,
it would have been a twin engined bomber with a crew of eight.
Span was 22,84m, wing sweep 35° and wing area 105 qm.

My dear Jemiba,


can I ask you if this designer was French or not ?.
 
Ciro Lamanna - Italian designer.
 
lark was faster, thank you ! ;)
No other information in the mentioned book besides that the project was axed
by the decision of the airforce to develop the Savoia-Marchetti S-73 into the SM-73
andf then the SM-82 and so to spare the money needed for this completely new type.
 
I had found this in a pdf file but the quality is bad, I'm glad that I found more about this plane!
