Self-portraits: Piero Fornasetti at Triennale Milano







" Regal, dapper, his hat plonked firmly on his head, a sleek white moustache, something old-fashioned about him (something obvious, stubborn), something jazzed up in bizarre memories - wearing an acid green shirt scattered with typeface characters, accompanied by a plain grey flannel suit and a red waistcoat - Piero Fornasetti opened the chiming door of his shop (his Museum? his Office? his Bazaar?)
situated in via Brera, Milan"

Written Portrait by Patrick Mauriès
author of one of the most comprehensive books on Piero Fornasetti
He met him in Milan during the late '80s while working for Franco Maria Ricci.

V&A Pearls Exhibition


An Exhibition not to be misses if you are in London

Pearl fishing in the Gulf

Natural oyster pearls were fished in the Gulf from as early as the first millennium BC until the decline of the trade by the mid 20th century. The procedure of harvesting oysters has remained unchanged over centuries. The diver’s equipment was basic, a loin cloth, nose clip of tortoiseshell or wood and a leather sheath to hold the oysters.
The diver descended with two ropes: one attached to a net for collecting the oysters (about twelve per dive), the second attached to a stone weighing five to seven kilograms to speed up descent, with a loop for the diver’s foot. When he was ready, the puller attentive to his signals would let the two ropes run free. Within seconds the diver would reach the bottom, sometimes as deep as 22 metres, and let go of the rope carrying the weight.
Little do the magnificent necklaces of natural Gulf pearls, arranged according to scale and lustre, reveal the effort it takes to assemble such masterpieces. 2000 oyster shells need to be opened before finding a single beautiful pearl.

PIERO FORNASETTI: I INVENTED THE TRAY Milano Triennale 2013





"Mi reputo l'inventore del vassoio perchè ad un certo punto
della nostra civiltà non si sapeva più come porgere un bicchiere,
un messaggio, una poesia
sono nato in una famiglia di pessimo buon gusto e faccio
del pessimo buon gusto la chiave della libertà"
" I consider myself the inventor of the tray because at one point in time
in our civilization we did not have any idea in how to serve a glass,
present a message or a poem
I was born into a family with an abominable sense of style,
I made the abominable sense of style the key of liberty"
