Special Edition - Roma Fountain pen - 18ct Gold nib - Aurora
Caput Mundi Ars Scribendi
The Latin expression “Capital of the World” is not a legend. Aurora celebrates Rome with some symbols that marked the traits of a glorious culture. The Colosseum, the Mouth of Truth (Bocca della Verità), the Spanish steps (Trinità dei Monti) are the facets of a civilization that can still be admired with awe, as testimonies of secular enterprises of a mighty Empire. The myth of a great era that is represented symbolically in the world with famous acronym S.P.Q.R. and with the figure of a Gladiator: emblems that today are relived in this precious collection pen, to witness the values of a great and eternal Rome.
Pens are made in red resin; the cap is covered by a sterling silver overlay that represents the most important monuments of the city:
- the Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre of the Roman empire still built (50/80.000 spectators); its arches are engraved also on the central ring, with the ROMA word and the Capitoline Wolf (the legend tells of a she-wolf who rescued and feeded the baby-twins Romolo and Remo, founders of Rome);
- A Roman centurion with his sword, and the Rome's coat of arms with the famous acronym S.P.Q.R (in Latin means: the Senate and people of Rome);
- the Mouth of Truth, that became famous in the "Roman Holidays" movie, with an unforgettable Audrey Hepburn;
- the famous Spanish Steps with the Trinità dei Monti church.
- The silver ring at the cap top, where the clip inserts, is decorated with a line of coat-of-arms, of the same model of the Roma city's emblem.
