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.

ColosseoRome 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.
Every single detail of this Limited Edition encapsulates the essence of this marvellous city, first of all the impressive Flavian Amphitheatre (the Colosseum) engraved on the barrel; it's a symbol of the futuristic Roman architecture, when the systematic use of arches enabled to build stately civil and palatial constructions.

The ring on the nib holder is decorated with a vertical fret pattern.

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.
(According with the legend, the she-wolf fed Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome, and is regarded as a symbol of Rome).

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.
