Passione means more to Italians than the obvious heated desire and obsession. It can also mean fondness, the pursuit of a hobby, or the love of a sports team. Whatever definition it is employed for, it always stands for interest beyond the merely passing. It can demonstrate a love so strong that it can barely be contained, whether for a person or a musical genre, for art or sculpture or the theatre, or even for collecting inanimate objects.
the Passione collection is made in celluloid, presented in four hues. Two represent the unlimited lust and passion in the extreme, in sizzling orange and spicy cinnamon, while the Mediterranean blue and the vertical Zebra stripes convey magnetic qualities with a slightly cooler touch. The nature of this material ensures that the colour patterns of no two pens will be identical, adding a bespoke touch.
Inevitably, the Passione collection oozes with sensuality. It strikes the writer through its sinuously curved pocket clip, underlined by the two matching enamel lines, and a voluptuous shape, ending with the traditional 1912 high-relief logo. Each writing instrument in the Passione family is trimmed in 925 sterling silver trim, while the fountain pens are fitted with filigree-pattern 18K gold nibs.
The feeder of each fountain pen is made of ebonite, a natural hard rubber traditionally used in the pen-making industry for its excellent writing performance.
Passion is rewarded with a collection comprised of four writing tools. Passione is offered as a fountain pen in both cartridge and converter-fed form, a rollerball pen, a ballpoint pen and a mechanical pencil. Each expresses unequivocal, unconditional ardour that transcends the ordinary.
