Illustrating Fornasetti’s distinctive yet playful re-imagining of the zodiac and conjuring a world of mystery and destiny, the celestial ‘Astronomici’ design was originally unveiled in the 1950’s as a collection of porcelain plates for the Atelier. Later, Fornasetti was given the opportunity to decorate the Andrea Doria ship with this design; an Italian Ocean liner headed to New York City that was later wrecked in 1956 during a voyage.
Otto is a unique scent that transcends time, season, gender and borders. Mediterranean herbs that were found in and around the family home, woods often utilised in interiors designs or pieces of furniture created by Fornasetti. Other more ethereal ingredients - such as incense - conjure a latent spirituality or sense of dreamscape that is often present in Fornasetti graphic poetry.
