.:. Fornasetti
No description of this shop can be quite adequate: seeing is believing. The founder Piero Fornasetti - Milanese 'designer of dreams' famous the world over for his decorative wall-plates, trompe-l'oeils, objects and eccentric 1950s-style furniture - died in 1988. His son Barnaba took over the business and moved the shop to loftier premises, back to its origins in Via Manzoni, where creations inspired by the artist are shown off to great advantage. The Victoria & Albert Museum in London paid a tribute to Fornasetti's outstanding originality with an exhibition of his work in 1991.
