Atelier Fornasetti Milano is a beautiful shop selling licensed Fornasetti’s objects. The effort is spearheaded by Barnaba Fornasetti, a colorful personality, who leads a design team that continues to refine and define the legacy of Piero Fornasetti. A must-visit shop if you love to enhance your home with beautiful timeless designer objects. And now a New Fornasetti Store opens at the Milan Fashion District and historical city center.
The newest Fornasetti store, opening at Milan’s Fashion District and historical city center, shows a unique and diverse vision through each individual room. The shop is placed at the neoclassical building that once was the house of the poet, writer, art theorist and founder of the futurist movement, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti.
With three levels, the space can be explored room by room, each one highlighted by a different color scheme and theme. The store presents itself as a treasure chest, guiding the visitor through a visual display of classic details, pictures, and tailored items.

The walls display the many faces of operatic soprano Lina Cavalieri – a motif which has been repeated and transformed by Fornasetti through various creative passages. One area is defined by its polka-dot ceiling and illustrative furniture pieces, whilst a separate room stands in contrast, using a decorative ‘nuvole’ (clouds) print wallpaper and complimentary vintage objects.
The Fornasetti Atelier regularly produces bespoke items with novel shapes and sizes and this tradition will now be offered in the new store, including expert advice for tailored pieces towards individual clients and specific interior design proposals. The opening of the shop presents a full immersion into the Fornasetti archive, showcasing the company’s strong visual aesthetic that runs through all of their creative projects.
