Fornasetti Exhibitions

THE EXHIBITION LAYOUT TAKES THE VISITOR THROUGH A PATH STARTING WITH A SELECTION OF ICONIC PIERO FORNASETTI’S OBJECTS AS THE TRUMEAU, SCREENS AND TABLES. IT CONTINUES WITH THE DEBUT AS PRINTMAKER IN HIS WORKSHOP OF ARTIST’S BOOKS AND THROUGH A SELECTION OF HIS PAINTINGS. THE COLLABORATION WITH GIO PONTI WAS AN ENCOUNTER THAT PROVED VERY IMPORTANT. TOGETHER THEY IMAGINED COMPLETE INTERIOR DESIGN AND DECORATION SOLUTIONS FOR PRIVATE HOMES, OCEAN LINERS AND CASINOS. THE EXHIBITION UNVEILS ALSO THE MULTITUDE OF MOTIFS FORNASETTI APPLIED ON PORCELAIN’S OBJECTS, UMBRELLA STANDS AND TRAYS. THE “TEMA E VARIAZIONI” ROOM HOSTS THE MOST ICONIC FORNASETTI’S DÉCOR, A CASCADE OF PLATES HANGING ON THREADS LIKE “MOBILES”. THE EXHIBITION ENDS WITH THE CONTEMPORARY AND RECENT WORKS BY PIERO’S SON, BARNABA.
CURATED BY BARNABA FORNASETTI AND SILVANA ANNICHIARICO
