‘fogliolina’, which means ‘small leaf’ in italian, decorates the largest version of the buffet. barnaba fornasetti, the son of the late piero fornasetti drew his influences for the design from the chest of ‘leopardo’ (leopard) drawers created in the ’50s by his father, replacing the animal with the legendary face of italian opera singer lina cavalier.
