In 2013, for the centennial of the birth of Piero Fornasetti, the Triennale Design Museum in Milan organized the exhibition Piero Fornasetti. Cento anni di Follia Pratica, curated by Barnaba Fornasetti, as a tribute to Fornasetti, and to present a new, authoritative interpretation of his works. In 2015 the show traveled to Paris with great success, in the majestic spaces of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs.
Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul hosts the first Asian presentation of the exhibition Fornasetti Practical Madness in the Exhibition Hall. The Triennale Design Museum thus returns to Korea to move forward with its mission of promoting Italian design in the world.
The show includes over 1300 pieces – mostly from the extraordinary archive in Milan organized by Barnaba Fornasetti – covering the major themes of the work of Fornasetti in an itinerary structured in various sections.
