THEMES AND INSPIRATIONS
JOURNEY AROUND THE SUN
When the Sun comes together with Fornasetti’s pen it leaves the natural dimension and enters an imaginary one. Transformative and eccentric, it takes on the features of a human face; it smiles; it displays its austere, regal side or pushes through the clouds to light up the white, geometric architecture of Capri. Inspired by almanacs, calendars and popular imagery, Fornasetti’s creativeness transforms it with elegant contours, elevating it to a sophisticated, timeless decoration.
Unpublished drawings and handwritten messages come together in a black and white aesthetic: an elegant collection revealing irresistible hints of irony.
