‘Bacio’ is one of the most famous images. It inspired Forna- sett to coin the phrase ‘Tema e Variazoni ‘(‘Themes & Variations’). The face is that of opera singer Lina Cavalieri who is most frequently used as a template for more than 350 design variations.
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.
