Landing on this island halfway between Sicily and Africa, highlighted by the wind, the first protagonist not to encounter obstacles of vegetation, highlighted by the blinding light of the sun which burns onto the arid land and tinges the waters of the sea, coloured by the intense blue of the sky.
And it was precisely the wind, the sun and the sea to inspire our first thoughts about how such a fascinating and intense an island as Lampedusa should present itself for welcoming the tourists drawn here.
We decided upon a main theme of mosaics and stones, exactly the concept we were looking for, permitting us to combine and add stronger tones to the island's existing colours.
