Who we are


Who we are

Luca Valonta and Michele Costantini, both Venetians, founded their company in 1989, taking over an existing printing and graphics firm. After exhaustive research and intensive study in Venice regarding a name for the company, they settled on Tipografia Grafiche Ellemme.

Luca Valonta

Luca is L, a printer from birth and also a truly passionate photographer. This is probably why his friends call him the typophotographer.

Michele Costantini

Michele is M. A born musician, he entered the world of printing by chance, after spending his formative years in training at the Rialto fish markets.
