The enigmatic muse of Fornasetti Design, Natalina Cavalieri, was a 19th century Italian opera soprano singer who as a young orphan, came to Paris to pursue a musical career. Sometime in the 1950’s, the legendary Milanese artist Piero Fornasetti (1913-1988) first saw her face in a French magazine and was bewitched...forever.

Piero’s son Barnaba successfully continues on with the company’s design philosophy and vision but without a third generation to take on the family business these handmade objects are collector’s pieces in the making and would make perfect gifts for Fornasetti connoisseurs and admirers alike.


ACT FAST and be done with your Christmas shopping by mid-November. All that’s left to do is place these goodies under your tree.
