Fornasetti Décor and Furnishings

The dining room name recalls the charming Duomo Sommerso panel located in the centre of the right-hand wall. The decorative piece, inspired by an illustration of Piero Fornasetti created in 1951, features the symbol of Milan – the Duomo – underwater, with myriad fish of various shapes and colours swimming around the cathedral.

Adorning the wall space by this intriguing panel is a selection of plates from the Cupole d’Italia series, a tribute to Italian and Milanese architecture. The marine theme continues in the two corner cupboards, decorated with the iconic face of soprano Lina Cavalieri, the ‘most beautiful woman in the world’ who hugely inspired Fornasetti’s work. Decorative lines on Lina’s face create an innovative version of an imaginary atlas illustrated with marine life.

The dining room ceiling, which features a delicate Nuvolette wallpaper motif that mimics the clouds, enhances the room’s dreamlike and soothing atmosphere.
