Replying to myself:

It's a unsolved GNOME bug dated on 2005 :-/

***
show hidden files doesn't work on desktop
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=309856
***

Good news is that it can be by-passed by clicking -over the desktop- "Ctrl
+H" combo key to show both hidden and backup files/folders.

Bad news is that the setting does not survive between sessions ;-(
