One of the most beautiful cities of Italy is Florence, home of the renaissance and an artistic beauty in itself. Such a fine and important city has inevitably inspired Aurora to produce this wonderful special edition fountain pen. The Aurora Firenze Fountain Pen is a remarkable piece of work, carefully finished to highlight the most admired features of the Italian city!
Florence began to prosper in the Middle Ages due to a fast growing trade activity. The Florin, Florence’s own coin, began to be widely used not only in Italy but in other parts of Europe as a trade value, and was the first gold coin used in this way. This prosperity made Florence one of the richest and most powerful cities in Europe and made possible it’s vital role in the Italian Renaissance. The wealthiest families in Florence sponsored Italy’s most important Renaissance artist, such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Michaelangelo and Botticelli. Thanks to this contribution, Florence contains some of the most important works of art in the world!
The Aurora Firenze Pen is finished in red resin the heraldic color of the Italian city. On the barrel you’ll find the flor de lis, Florence’s representative symbol. The cap is finished with sterling silver trims which are engraved to represent some of the most impressive artistic monuments in Florence. The David of Michaelangelo, the Uffizi tower, and Santa Maria del Fiore’s Cathedral. The pen comes with a solid 18k gold nib and includes Aurora’s hidden reservoir piston filler.
