"I had just put my camera together when I saw this young woman, not too far from where I was standing. Her unique beauty and deep, dark eyes fascinated me from first glance, as she tried to arrange her veil. I decided to photograph her when a gust of wind came along and interrupted her veiling procedure...she noticed me and looked right into the camera...snap! An amazing stroke of luck!

The Girl from Marrakesh

Domenico Ponziano


Growing up in the northeastern Italian seaside city of Trieste, Domenico Ponziano possessed a strong interest in the unknown, the unusual and the exotic. It was this curiosity that pushed him to explore the outside world and travel to different lands and begin his career as an artist and photo journalist. It was Domenico’s hope to bring an accurate image of what ‘real life’ is like for people in the other corners of the earth.

According to Domenico, “My work has everything to do with the reality that is around me, in managing to capture the essence of a place, the power of a feeling, the simple greatness of a gesture or a single shot. This is what makes me love my work. I’m constantly searching for what Henri Cartier-Bresson considered to be the father of modern photojournalism, defined as ‘the decisive moment’. But it’s very clear to me that I’ll only be able to reach the true depth of things as long as I respect the intrinsic essence of their existence. My work tends to lean towards reflecting reality but it also reflects my own interior; my cultural and emotional universe, through the choice of what I include within my frame and how I choose to include it. I work mostly based on instinct, and at the same time I try to develop a personal visual path that relates to the psychology of people, the understanding of different places and the cultures that I encounter.”

La Biennale di Venezia

While in Venice, we attended the 53rd International Art Exhibition, “Making Worlds”, La Biennale di Venezia in 2009. We left the exhibition with more ideas and inspiration than imagined. The international art experience aligned perfectly with our vision for Elementos Design; discovering artists who create objects through inspiration that surrounds them, and sharing these works of art and the story behind them with others motivated by the artist’s introspective view of the world.”

Daniel Birnbaum the Director of the exhibition wrote these inspirational words, “A work of art is more than an object, more than a commodity. It represents a vision of the world, and if taken seriously must be seen as a way of making a world. A few signs marked on paper, a barely touched canvas, or a vast installation can amount to different ways of worldmaking, and the strength of the vision is hardly dependent on the complexity of the tools brought into play.”

Design in Sicily


Talk about multi-faceted! Not only is Luca Giannini one of our featured Italian artists for his paintings, sculptures and photography (find him in our web gallery) but several years ago he expanded his talents to vacation home design and management. We would like to introduce you to his artistic, romantic, private and eco-friendly tourist home in Sicily. This is a rare and very special opportunity for you to stand face to face with his art and see firsthand how his beautiful pieces can be designed into your own home.

Join us as we take a journey through Luca’s treasured design property in Modica, Sicily, which he named Anime a Sud, or Spirits of the South…
