Acqua di Parma Pen Collection

Sharing the pleasure of hand writing
with Acqua di Parma

Acqua di Parma is an Italian brand of noble heritage. Since 1916, when it launched its iconic fragrance Colonia, Acqua di Parma has been pursuing its passion for tradition in the richest and most vibrant sense. Acqua di Parma effortlessly reinterprets the traditions of Italian heritage with a contemporary twist to create modern classics. Its creations encompass a host of values aimed at a well-travelled, sophisticated, and style-savvy customer: the quality and individuality that derives from quintessentially Italian craftsmanship and a culture of harmony and perfection through its attention to detail and in the consistency of the combination as a whole. Acqua di Parma is a lifestyle, an attitude conveyed through the pursuit of beauty in all places and in all deeds. The art of hand writing is just one of the daily luxuries that forms part of a quintessential Italian lifestyle. Precious paper, strong and soft to the touch, joins the subtle mark of ink.

 

It takes time and care to write down thoughts and ideas. The nib runs fluidly and sharply according to the rules of calligraphy, considered as an art in the Italian Renaissance when it enjoyed great popularity. The word’s etymology, from κ?λλος, “beauty,” and γρ??ω “write” in ancient Greek, reveals the soul of this discipline, which teaches its pupil how to trace the different shapes and styles of writing with elegant confidence. Hand writing today means pursuing a tradition and an art that boasts a great history, while relishing time for self-expression. The hand’s fluidity follows the train of thought and emotion, and a hand-written message is something unique and unrepeatable, to be treasured by its recipient. In order to bring the best of this exquisite art to its customers, Acqua di Parma has partnered with Aurora, an historical brand that shares the same values of timeless elegance and Italian craftsmanship, for which both brands are ambassadors on the international stage.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Acqua di Parma partners with
writing art and design
since 1919

Aurora, the first Italian “fountain pen factory,” was established in Turin in 1919, as much a symbol of Italian-made excellence today as it was in those early years. It was founded by the Verona family, the promoter of an exquisite evolution of writing instruments for four generations. Each Aurora pen conveys such values as creativity, quality, and elegance. Cutting-edge manufacturing techniques are combined with processes borrowed from the goldsmith’s art using the finest materials. Each pen - as precious and unique as a jewel - is crafted by highly experienced Italian masters and aimed at a public of aficionados and collectors.
