When Barnaba Fornasetti put on an art exhibition to honor the centennial birthday of his late father, the famous painter, sculptor and decorator Piero Fornasetti, thousands of people showed up.

Held at the Triennale Design Museum, 100 Years of Practical Madness was an exhaustive exploration of the latter’s life and modern design work, with objects piled on top of each other and walls covered in dizzying designs. While the exhibition was temporary, Piero Fornasetti’s surreal aesthetic can be permanently found in the family’s Milan home, Casa Fornasetti.

Today, the house remains colored by Piero Fornasetti’s creations. It doesn’t take long before visitors are confronted with the Fornasetti modern design legacy – upon entering from the wildly verdant courtyard, an entry hall leads to what was once Piero’s printing room, displaying the prints he did for contemporaries such as de Chirico, Lucio Fontana, and Massimo Campigli. Here, it’s said, is where Piero conceived his legendary modern art designs in the mid-20th century that to this day, are still iconic pieces in the contemporary art world.
