Sales contracts were concluded in 1988 between an Italian seller and two Austrian buyers.

The court, in determining whether CISG was applicable, held that even if Austrian private international law rules referred to the law of Italy - a contracting State at the time the sales contracts were concluded (Art. 1(1)(b) CISG) - renvoi (reference back and forward) had to be taken into account. The court, therefore, denied the application of CISG as the Italian private international law rules referred back to Austrian law.
