Piero Fornasetti - Designer

A 26' documentary directed in 2012 by Boris Ehrgott

Discover the world of Piero Fornasetti (1913-1988) in Milan, where his son Barnaba extends the dream of his father.

At once painter, graphic artist, sculptor, interior decorator and engraver, he has completed more than 11,000 sets and costumes, and worked on all possible supports: ties, vests, glasses, plates, umbrella, lamps, furniture, screens…

At age 19, Fornasetti is dismissed for indiscipline of the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera.

His works has been noticed by the architect and designer Gio Ponti. At his side he starts to build his world.

The other reason that dominates its universe is improbable perspectives, the trompe-l'oeil and the imaginary city.
