It is impossible for Fornasetti’s attentive eye to remain indifferent to the charm of the natural world’s most colourful and dynamic inhabitants. Gathered in romantic bouquets or glorified in their ephemeral, solitary beauty, flowers are one of the young Piero’s first creative inspirations. The hand traces what the imagination suggests onto the paper and soon a floral theme is brought to life on furniture, trays and small objects. The Fornasetti garden is the place where the imagination is revealed. For more than seventy years the delicate nuances of the hydrangeas have accompanied the spring, while the expert hands of the Atelier’s painters have translated it into sophisticated, timeless creations.
