|Green white and red for the 150th anniversary of Italy's unification
A new special collection, dedicated to Italian culture.
Created in collaboration with the designer Carlo Naldi,the collection fully represents Italian style.
At first sight the pen reminds the Italian flag and its colors (green, white and red); but, if you pay attention to the pens' shape, you'll note the special oblique cut of the cap top and of the nib casing, which reminds.. penne, indeed: the typical shape of Italian pasta!
Red for the tomato, white for the pasta, and green for basil ...
The pens are made in red, white and green pearly resin; and feature a sterling silver clip.
The fountain pen is cartidge/converter filled, and its nib is in 14 Kt bicolor gold. A version with steel nib has been made as well.
The pen, closed, measures 142 mm. and its max diameter is 16 mm.; open, with posted cap, it measures 160 mm.
