Italian Art in Writing

    Trevi Fountain, one of Rome’s most famous sculptural masterpieces, is immortalized in the Trevi collection of pens from Stipula. This Florentine pen maker, known for its exquisite metalwork, has imbued each piece with the spirit of its namesake, creating masterpieces of its own in 18-karat gold and sterling silver. Each pen is a one-of-a-kind sculpture, with highly polished enamel in watercolor shades of blue and green complementing the matte-finished cast metal. Trevi is part of Stipula’s Academia project, wherein the Italian Renaissance is explored each year through the medium of the pen, using authentic Florentine craftsmanship to create each collection. The gold fountain pen is priced at $14,800 and the silver, $5,000. (www.stipula.com)
