William Morris was born in 1834, outside London, into a wealthy family. He graduated in theology at the University of Oxford, but did not pursue an ecclesiastical career, opting for art. After experimenting with architecture and painting, he ended up settling on the so-called minor arts. The decorative arts firm Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co., formed in 1861 with the collaboration of a few friends, painters and architects, was a key element in the late 19th century design and decorative arts revolution, whose repercussions were felt in Europe and the USA. In addition to being a designer, Morris sought to disseminate his theory of art through essays and above all through a large number of conferences. He dedicated himself with great commitment to the protection of the natural and built heritage, highlighting, in this context, his role in the foundation of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings. His enthusiasm and dynamism exhausted him prematurely: he died in 1896, aged 62.
