Italy (1913-1988)

Piero Fornasetti is an unusual creator. While most of the 50s and 60s creators turned away from tradition and decoration to focus on pure lines and forms, Fornasetti remained strongly attached to classical decorative styles. Working with Gio Ponti from the triennial of Milan in 1933, his works are regularly celebrated in the Domas magazine. His genius lies in how he utilizes settings to transform random objects in extraordinary illusions. Internationally renowned for his distinguished historicism in the 60s, he is one of the champions of postmodernism.
