Elena Girardello is from Vicenza, Italy. She fell in love with Miami’s diverse culture and decided to stay.
The company I worked for in Italy was building a factory in Florida and sent me to Miami to set up customer service operations for the Americas. My contract was only for one year, but I fell in love with the city and decided to stay. Miami is a great place to live and the business opportunities here are endless.
My goals are to expand the business, open more showrooms in cities like NY and LA. Ideally, I want to build an international business.
My dream is to collaborate with the innovators and trend-setters like Karim Rashid, Philippe Starks, and Piero Lissoni just to mention some. Also, it would be great to see more mosaics incorporated into the urban setting of Miami. Brickell City Center or Flagler street would be a great place for it.
