A flight beyond the limits of the imagination lead Fornasetti to an enchanted, hypnotic Jerusalem. Multiple points of view overlap, with different architectural styles chasing each other in a continuous pattern. The precise black line of the buildings interprets a boundless imagination, creating an intriguing texture. The first dreamlike journey of this design took place on the 'Gerusalemme' wallpaper designed by Piero Fornasetti for the entrance hall of his Milan residence at the end of the 1940s. It was then later extended to trays, magazine racks, lamps, and pieces of furniture. A shining sun, peeking through the clouds, was added to the landscape in the early 90s, adding another fanciful element to this sprawling print.
A bright cerulean sky gives way to a deep tanzanite as the scene is taken from day to night, with the introduction of a lustred mica for this midnight palette bringing the most subtle details to the fore.
