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"
