Piero Fornasetti
100 anni di follia pratica

19 November 2013

On the occasion of the centenary of his birth, the Milan Triennale is staging the first major retrospective of the work of Piero Fornasetti: painter, printer, product and fashion designer, collector, refined craftsman, interior decorator, gallery owner and deviser of exhibitions. A versatile and eclectic personality, a Renaissance man, who has left an indelible mark on the decoration of the 20th century, thanks in part to a number of drawings that have found a place in the collective imagination, like the face of Lina Cavalieri, reproduced in infinite variations. Subdivided by fields of activity, the exhibition Piero Fornasetti. 100 anni di follia pratica presents over 1000 pieces, most of them coming from the Archivio Fornasetti, maintained by his son Barnaba, who continues his activity and has curated the exposition. Until February 9, 2014.
