Preview of Aurora's Torino 150 Special Production

In 2011, Italy is celebrating 150 years of unification. The entire country is going to be partying for 9 months starting in March. Aurora, Italy is the official pen-maker for this occasion. To commemorate the first "capital" of Italy, often referred to as the "cradle of Italian liberty," Aurora will release the Torino 150 in March as a special production in the same vein as the red Firenze set of pens. Featuring a cool, blue resin and sterling silver overlay on the cap, this pen collection stands out with symbols that represents rich Italian history and a level of quality that only Italian artisans in the Aurora factory can produce.

The Aurora Torino 150 will be available in a piston-filling fountain pen, complete with ink window, 18kt solid gold nib and a bottle of ink included in the special edition gift box. The set is also available in a capped rollerball and a twist-action ballpen. Retail prices start at $895 for the ballpen. If you would like more information on the release of this pen and to be included on our e-mail list, please comment below and we will secure you one of the first pieces to come into the USA!
