Silk-screen printing is a direct printing technique brought to France in the 1910s. Created in China during the Song dynasty (920-1279), it was little used in Europe until the 19th century. Initially, this method involved the creation of stencils using sticky paper and various pastes to make masks.

Fornasetti began using this method in the 1940s, in his father's workshop. Exclusively handmade, this technique is the source of the graphic black lines that give Fornasetti its identity. The decoration transferred to the surface is left to dry for several months before receiving numerous coats of lacquer: this process seals the decoration, giving the furniture its characteristic shine and pleasant feel.

From porcelain to furniture and accessories, each piece is meticulously handcrafted in the Milan workshop. The result is a collection of over 11,000 objects.

Although all the works are by Fornasetti himself, none captures Piero's spirit as well as the faces he created based on the beautiful Lina Cavalieri, which become the artist's imprint.
