DESIGN ICON /FORNASETTI You've seen it and you probably wondered who this enigmatic lady was. Her expression and the perfect oval of her face inspired infinite variations to the main theme (tiles, plates, pillows, ceramics, wallpaper). Her name was Lina Cavalieri (1874-1944), an Italian soprano, famous for her grace and beauty. And the artist who gave immortality to this almost sad gaze was Piero Fornasetti. He chose her as his muse.
