If you’ve walked through any airport recently, you’ve noticed people sporting their beats by dr. dre headphones. I own a pair, believe me, they’re worth the investment. I love headphones in general. In fact, I probably own 7 or 8 pairs. When I visited Tokyo’s electronic district, I drooled at the selection of them.
Headphones are an essential part of my life, especially when traveling. Which is why I’m proud to introduce this next item from the Italian Collection – Headphones by St. Peter’s Basilica.

They certainly send a message.
Want to keep your hardwoods or carpets spotless while showing little panache? I guess you could go with a Dyson. Or you could opt for The Leaning Tower of Pisa Vacuum Cleaner, the latest product from my Italian Collection.

Remarkable isn’t it?
Another in the series of The Italian Collection, this time presenting The Gondola Skateboard. This one was an easy inspiration. Venice remains one of the most magical places I’ve ever visited. And deep down, I always wanted to be a skateboarder. My dream professions?
- Chef (I have a section on Food)
- DJ (I already have names picked out – DJ Rico Roughneck, DJ Inspecta Collecta, DJ Ernest Spinningway)
- Photographer (I take lots of pics)
- Traveler (I also play the hapless traveler role well)
The Gondola Skateboard combines my love of travel with adoration of skateboarding. I once interviewed Tony Hawk and also put in many hours playing Tony Hawk Pro Skater. As mentioned, I’ve been to Venice. Heck, I’ve even been to The Venetian in Las Vegas. And I’ve skinned the entire side of my leg and butt cheek skateboarding.That is what we call in the business, establishing credibility.

This is the original concept. How about a fancy rendering?
Ladies and Gentleman, may I present to you, The Roman Art Colosseum Hot Tub. The first in a new series called The Italian Collection. Part art, part functional object – art and design living in an Italian inspired harmony. La dolce vita!
The Roman Colosseum Hot Tub
I’ll be honest. I’m not a big fan of hot tubs.
