Everyone wants her: who is Lina Cavalieri?

Poet Gabriele D'Annunzio dedicated her a copy of his novel "il Piacere" (the Pleasure) and described her as "a Venus on Earth". Davide Campari used her as an excuse to leave on his business trips. Gina Lollobrigida played her character in the movie "The most beautiful woman in the world", in 1955, winning the Donatello David as best actress. And when Piero Fornasetti saw her face in a late 19th century magazine, he fell in love with her enigmatic look. Since then he made screenprint of her face on every ceramic he produced.

Rustic style in the round

We can almost say that it is as old as man, the rustic style is possibly the most antique of all styles. Yet it holds its charm even in a global world like ours.

Cabinets of Curiosity

If you think that unicorns, mermaids, taxidermy and rare collections of shells and butterflies are just a fashion of our time, you are wrong.

One can think of the words of the physical scholar Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier: "nothing is created, nothing is destroyed, everything is transformed".
