And the story goes on ... A family tradition. Leonardo is a forge, a laboratory where experience and craftsmanship are mixed giving life to "pleasure", the pleasure of writing. Over 45 years of experience in the field of writing instruments, handed down from father to son, from generation to generation. Leonardo Officina Italiana holds a special place in the heart of Armando Simoni Club pens, because the owners of both companies share a history and a passion for pens. In 1978, the father of ASC founder Emmanuel Caltagirone, started his own pen company. His first customer, in 1982, was Ciro Matrone, one of the founders of the Delta pen company. Almost 40 years later, Ciro's son Salvatore makes the Armando Simoni Club pens in Naples, Italy - and now, he has launched his own brand: Leonardo Officina Italiana. This brand represents everything we love: handmade Italian pens, beautiful materials, great nibs, and a true passion for pens. We are therefore very proud to add Leonardo pens to our inventory.
Positivity and desire to start with a great enthusiasm driven by passion for writing instruments and forty years of experience in creating them. A collection inspired by the Italian vintage pen styles known throughout the world, well balanced in size and in metal details.
The Momentozero Mediterraneo is made from a beautiful Italian celluloid accompanied by rhodium trims, and it will be created in limited edition of 100 pens. The pen is supplied with a semi-flexible 14k nib with ebonite feed. The beautiful celluloid that evokes the sea breeze and shores of Naples is accompanied by a twist piston filling system, housed directly inside the body of the pen.
