Forte_Forte Opens A New Boutique In The Eternal City


Forte_Forte has opened a new roman boutique, at number 4c on Via Borgognona, in the heart of Campo Marzio, an area that historically welcomed artists and innovation.

The new space’s focal point is large symmetrical matte green onyx, imported from Afghanistan, which adorns the boutique, from bottom to top.

The stone’s entire perimeter is marked with lighting, while polished brass panels folded in on themselves and anchored by metal stitching make up the back wall. In contrast, the ceilings are white in the front of the shop, with inclined and dynamic bands, while elsewhere, they open in a geometric composition of portholes. The dressing rooms closed by brass hinged doors opened by portholes, which reveals feminine, boudoir–like interiors in sage-colored capitonné velvet.

The furniture pursues the idea of eclectic balance. In front of the dressing rooms stands a display wall for accessories with elements collected along travels: labradorite, jasper, and pink quartz stones; a green jade; books and pottery. The two spaces are divided by a triptych mirror on the wall, while the ceiling features a large curved shield, painted in sage green. A circular bench carved from a block of agglomerate wraps in a cloud-shaped vase containing a giant alocasia plant. The cash desk is located in the back of the shop, while the warehouse, accessed through a brass–framed onyx door, is organized with filing cabinets placed on rails in a nuance of sage green. The boutique’s exteriors, located in a historic building and under the protection of the superintendence of fine arts, are in travertine, opened by three identical gates, two windows, and an entrance.
