Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator and printer of books. His creative output, handed down and reinterpreted today by his son Barnaba, is composed of a visual vocabulary that is instantly recognisable. Fornasetti conveys a sense of the poetic and magical through its depiction of a dream world filled with whimsical humour. The ‘Fornasetti Profumi per la Casa’ collection brings this unique world to life through a selection of hand crafted and scented decorative objects.
Fornasetti Profumi introduces a new design into its olfactive story ‘Sole di Capri’ – La Notte di Capri. The ‘La Notte di Capri’ design is a variation of one of Fornasetti's most cherished and enduring patterns. Piero Fornasetti always had a great passion for Capri and created his iconic Capri décors from his imagination, in advance of ever visiting the legendary island. Piero eventually took the family to Capri for holidays and during the 1960s he also opened an ephemeral Fornasetti store there. ‘La Notte di Capri’ or 'Capri by Night' is the serene setting of the island's buildings on a dark, inky night with the moon gently beaming. The combination of the personified moonlight and the stylized architecture (both Fornasetti archetypes) create a distinctive panorama for this new design. The colour combination of faded yellow and midnight blue (almost mat in appearance) is also quite unique in the context of Fornasetti's work.
The ‘Sole di Capri’ scent used in ‘La Notte di Capri’ is redolent of the scent of high summer on the island: over-bearing during the day yet softly lingering through the night. The intense southern Italian sunshine that warmed the terracotta terraces through the day mixes with the sea air and the surrounding citrus and pine trees.
