Ballpoint pen - NVMINE AFFLATVR - Il blu, la Poesia - The Vatican Museums Collection Pen.
Every detail of this writing instrument symbolically expresses a link with the art treasured in the Vatican Museums and the history of the Church of Rome. The golden decorations smoothly embracing the barrel are those of the Vatican Museums, inspired by designs of majolica made by ‘Luca della Robbia’ for the antique floor.
The same is for the inscription referring to the plates held by cherubs in the allegorical circles of the vault of Stanza della Segnatura by ‘Raphael’, symbols of Justice, Philosophy, Poetry, and Theology.
Only all this knowledge creates the ‘wisdom’ of things; hence the name of this pen collection ‘Imago Sapientiae’.
This pen is produced in hand-enamelled and gold plated alloy.
Pen was made on a project by Museovivo, Rome.
