The 'La Notte di Capri' design is a variation of one of Fornasetti's most cherished and enduring patterns. Piero Fornasetti always had a great passion for Capri and created his iconic Capri decors from his imagination, in advance of ever visiting the legendary island. Piero eventually took the family to Capri for holidays and during the 1960a, he opened an ephemeral Fornasetti store there.
'La Notte di Capri' or 'Capri by Night' is the scene setting of the island's buildings on a dark, inky night with the moon gently beaming. The combination of the personified moonlight and the stylized architecture (both Fornasetti archetypes) create a distinctive panorama for this new design. The color combination of faded yellow and midnight blue (almost matte in appearance) is also quite unique in the context of Fornasetti's work.
