Cole & Son / Fornasetti Collection
Piero Fornasetti had a deep love and admiration for music and theatre finding a wealth of inspiration from the Italian Commedia dell’arte. From this came the delightful Teatro. As charming today as it was then, Teatro was conceptualised in the 1950s. The scene is enthralling with intricate line work depicting elegant theatre goers. A delicate recolouring in the soft rose tones of Ballet Slipper plays towards the design’s theatrical inspiration, whilst the traditionally tasteful Racing Car Green is derived from timeless Fornasetti palettes of deep jade and emerald tones.
