"Una celebrazione. Un momento." 🇮🇹✍🇮🇹✍🇮🇹
The Aurora 88 Urano Limited Edition. This pen beautifully encapsulates what my 2018 has been. I get special pens to celebrate milestones and this is a celebration of Italian elegance and passion, as well as my 25th year of existence in this world. I've been waiting for a month to get this grail and it was worth the wait. The rose-gold nib is unlike any other writer that I've used--delightful amount of feedback similar to a newly-sharpened pencil. It reminds me of the warmth and generosity of Italian hospitality and the amazing people I've met when I lived there early this year as a visiting researcher. It writes fairly-dry for a Westerner and I find it well-suited for my left-handed writing.
The turquoise cap and barrel, evocative of its namesake Uranus' methane-rich atmosphere, goes perfectly with Diamine Aqua Lagoon. These colors remind me of the first time I experienced snow on the mountains of Trentino and the Alps, as well as the beauty of Mar Adriatico and the serene elegance of Venice.
Looking forward to a lifetime of writing with this pen! Andiamo!
