The Gioia Partenope is a classic-modern silhouette, that is obviously made in Italy. It is a clear example of the Neapolitan genius: it combines fountain pen and rollerball in a single solution with a new cartridge refill and converter system.
The clip is made using an ancient goldsmith's process called "lost wax technique" and the cap itself depicts the great beauty of the Gulf of Naples. Finally the finial is obtained with 3D technique and is enamelled.
The pen is available with an EF, F, M or stub (1.1mm) nib and comes with a rollerball accessory and a cartridge refill system.
Gioia Pen Italia was born in Naples from an idea of Mr. Fabio Cervasio. It is a collaboration of great master craftsmen with over 20 years of experience in the field of pen production. Already in 2014 the technical laboratory and the artisan workshop of Gioia started working on commissions for well-known Italian and international brands, to design, plan and produce wonderful writing instruments. Gioia Pen produces fountain pens, rollerballs, and ballpoint pens with strict quality controls. These pens are hand turned from bars of Italian resin, ebonite, celluloid and many other materials. And now Gioia Pen decides to put their pens to the attention of the whole world of beautiful writing.
