Aurora presents the first pen in its collection designed to celebrate the great Poet, “Dante Alighieri”, father of the Italian language, and his “Divine Comedy”, a work widely considered to be among the masterpieces of world literature and included in the 100 great books of all times.
The “Dante Inferno” pen is dedicated to the first canto of this famous work, a Numbered and Limited Edition collection that is available in 1,265 pieces, a number chosen to indicate the Poet’s date of birth, and 39 pieces for the version in solid gold, a number that symbolizes the 3 rivers in (Acheron, Styx and Phlegethon) and the 9 concentric circles leading down to the bottom of the abyss.
An exclusive writing instrument, which will be followed by “Purgatory” and “Paradise” models, realized by a brand like Aurora, a symbol of Italian creativity and manufacturing flair round the world, inspired by those men and women who have played such an important role in the history of culture in Italy.
The collection concentrates on the fountain pen, realized in colors that recall those of Inferno: a body in black lacquer with finishing in rose gold and with the addition of an Inferno red on the ring.
Some details, realized with customary craftsmanship and attention to detail, which have always characterized the Italian brand, make the “Dante Inferno” even more unique: Dante’s profile is present on the top of the pen, while on the ring there is the laurel leaves decoration that appears on the Poet’s head in all portraits; the 18 carat solid pink gold nib makes this jewel even more precious.
Symbolizing the Italian character of this pen are the word “Italy” on the head and the tricolor on the ring of the barrel.
The “Dante Inferno” pen comes in an elegant black case with interior in black leatherette. The Sleever is customized and dedicated to the famous opening lines of the first canto in Dante’s masterpiece “Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita mi ritrovai per una selva oscura…”.
