Replying to myself:
It's a unsolved GNOME bug dated on 2005 :-/
show hidden files doesn't work on desktop
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 ;-(
