OMAS unveils the prestigious Le Città collection, dedicated to the most significant cities all around the world. Places that left their mark on the history of humankind and keep driving it, or that are universally recognized as memorable and unforgettable.
Rome is the first city chosen for this collection. Not only because it's the Italian capital city, but also because it's considered the mother of all the cities worlwide, the cradle of the Western Civilization and of the empire which laid the foundation for the modern culture.
The sterling silver model is made in pearly charcoal-grey cotton resin.
18 kt gold nib carefully decorated with the outline of San Pietro's dome;
A natural cornelian gem, cabochon cut, is set at the cap top of the silver version; it substitutes the engraving od the Capitoline Wolf which enriches the golden version instead.
The fountain pens are piston filled in both versions.The Latin phrase S.P.Q.R.,
Senatus Populus Quiritium Romanus,
means "the Senate and (all)
the Roman citizens of the Quirites":
romans, military, politicians e citizens.
It's one of the most popular phrases in Rome.
The acronym S.P.Q.R. appeared indeed
in the official Roman documents
to ratify the will of the Government
and later on became the logo of Rome.
Nowadays S.P.Q.R. stands for
the coat of arms of Rome.
Both the versions of Roma are packed in beatuful wood boxes, with an Omas ink bottle.
