Italian painter, sculptor, and engraver Piero Fornasetti was famously obsessed with the face of 19th century operatic soprano Lina Cavalieri, featuring her face in thousands of designs. Also influenced by time and the sun, his work was often composed in black and white with slight bursts of color. Today, it is Piero's son, Barnaba, who reinterprets his father’s charming and whimsical art for the brand, in his remarkable home collection.
