Duomo Private Dining Room

Designed by Fornasetti, our Duomo Private Dining Room is the paragon of Milanese creativity and craftsmanship. Featuring bespoke furnishings and pieces sourced from the vast Fornasetti collection, the room is available for exclusive bespoke events, wine tastings and degustation menus for up to eight persons.

Fornasetti Décor and Furnishings

With the whimsical nature that is notably Fornasetti, the dining room name recalls the charming Duomo Sommerso panel located in the centre of the right-hand wall, inspired by an illustration of Piero Fornasetti created in 1951, which features the symbol of Milan, the Duomo, underwater, with a multitude of fish in every shape and colour swimming around the beloved cathedral.

The space is accented by a selection of Fornasetti’s signature plates from the Cupole d’Italia series, a tribute to Italian and Milanese architecture, while the corner cupboards are emblazoned with the iconic face of Fornasetti’s muse, Soprano Lina Cavalieri, dubbed “the most beautiful woman in the world.” Decorative lines on Lina’s face create an innovative version of an imaginary atlas illustrated with aquatic life.

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