What have you done with the trunk on your Giulia Sprint GT? If I'm not mistaken, from the factory they were fitted with rubber mats that covered the fuel tank, spare wheel, and also the inner fenders and area behind the seat. I opted to have carpeted panels installed and am considering adding some more carpet to the rest of the trunk. I'm curious what solutions others have come up with. I know it's not factory original, but sometimes utility must prevail.

For my 67 Sprint GT Veloce I bought the repro. 'rubber' matting for the Boot/Trunk from one of 'The Usual Suspects'. Looks pretty much like the original matting I had that was damaged (splits) in a few places. I think it suits the car and is practical. As you suggest, it covers the entire interior of the Boot bar the inside of the Lid in mine, which I think is correct.

You need something otherwise a unrestrained golf club, for example, will make a dent in the sides of your car

I have actually taken the Giulia to play golf before....my clubs fit in the trunk, only just. That said, it's the rare exception rather than the rule that I do so.

Not too tricky to cut your own...this is just cheap outdoor/marine stuff, not even edged.
But tucked together closely you can’t see any seams.
Did the interior too, but got that edged. I’ll probably upgrade to a Quality full set ‘one day’.

Nice work! I see you put your jack in its original location. Do you just pull the carpet back to get to your spare?

Yeah. I cut a couple of small squares out of the carpet which slip over jack’s the holding clamps.

It's always amusing here to see the different words used to describe things by people speaking the same language. My favourite is Wings/Fenders/Guards... Oops, more off topic.
