Pie­ro For­na­set­ti was a mas­ter of the deco­ra­ti­ve ima­gi­na­ti­on. His motifs con­ju­re up the illu­sio­nism of Arcim­boldo, the grand archi­tec­tu­ral fan­ta­sies of Pira­ne­si and Pal­la­dio, and some­thing of the wit of Piran­del­lo or even Picas­so. For­na­set­tis deco­ra­ti­ons trans­form fur­ni­tu­re, crea­ted in col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with Gio Pon­ti, into art objects touched by trom­pe loeil humour.

His designs endu­re in an asto­nis­hing varie­ty of forms: chairs, desks, screens, pia­nos, pla­tes, masks and other objects all pre­sent the artists timeless voca­bu­la­ry. For­na­set­tis end­less inven­ti­on is cele­bra­ted here in a book published to coin­ci­de with a major retro­s­pec­tive exhi­bi­ti­on in Paris. His visu­al puns and deco­ra­ti­ve devices are set out in the con­text of his pain­tings, litt­le con­s­i­de­red until now.

Biblio­phi­lia occu­pies cent­re sta­ge, with gra­phic sche­mes, designs for ima­gi­na­ry libra­ries and book­ca­ses set in iro­nic inte­ri­ors. The book gathers a plen­ti­ful array of his famous The­mes and Varia­ti­ons, a series of pla­te designs drawing on over 500 varia­ti­ons on the face of a famous ope­ra­tic beau­ty. A full chro­no­lo­gy of For­na­set­tis life and work accom­pa­nies the text.
