About Fornasetti:

Italian painter, sculptor, and engraver Piero Fornasetti was famously obsessed with the face of 19th-century operatic soprano Lina Cavalieri, featuring it in countless designs for his collection of tableware and home décor. Today, Piero’s son, Barnaba, reinterprets his father’s charming and whimsical art in this remarkable home line.
