A laboratory for the quirky, the whimsical, and the creative, Fornasetti recently opened its studio doors to share its stories by releasing a series of 10 short films about their work.

The work of Piero Fornasetti has inspired designers from Philippe Starck to Ettore Sottsass and for more than six decades has provided the world with an insight into the beauty of true craftsmanship. 

Founded in the early 1950s, Fornasetti established his Milanese-based artisan workshop with a troupe of skilled craftsmen who dedicated their knowledge in woodworking, painting, varnishing and pottery to the brand. The 10 short films they recently released provide a unique window into the world of Fornasetti.
