piero fornasetti was a milan painter, a sculptor, an interior decorator, an engraver of art books, a creator of more that 11,000 items, a deviser of sceneries and customs, an organizer of international exhibitions and events. as far as the variety of decorations is concerned, fornasetti’s production of objects and furniture is one of the largest of the 20th century.
now, an incredible abundance of piero fornasetti’s motifs has emerged, almost like magic, from fornasetti’s archive thanks to the skillful tenacity of his son barnaba.
here we offer you the chance to bring fornasetti into your home with this wonderful collection.
in the fornasetti ateliers, every single piece is still completely hand-made, and produced in yearly, limited editions. on all works, the progressive number of the object and the year of production are written, and when there is hand-painted color decoration, the artist who painted that particular piece also signs the work.
