Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator and printer. His artistic production, taken up and reinterpreted today by his son Barnaba, is composed of an instantly recognizable visual vocabulary.
Fornasetti communicates a vision imbued with poetry and magic in his representation of a dreamlike world full of fantasy.
The "Fornasetti Profumi per la Casa" collection brings this unique world to life through a range of hand-made perfumed decorative items.
A visionary, Fornasetti sees himself simply as a decorative artist, despite his boundless imagination for the applications of his art. Design collaborations were natural for him: he has worked with architects and designers on interiors as diverse as those of Milan's Arlecchino cinema, the transatlantic liner Andrea Doria, the Sanremo casino and the Milanese pastry shop Dulciora. He has also collaborated with ceramist Bitossi and stylist Liliana Berio.
