LA DOTTA Campanula

A mother-of-pearl and iridescent lilac of the Campanula reminds us of the bell-shaped flowers, one species of which has been given a name linked to our city.


Nibs guide

The heart of every SCRIBO fountain pen is the nib and we do it in gold; every nib is assembled together with ebonite feeders only, to get the best available handwriting performance; our nibs, in either the classic 18-carat alloy or the special Extra-Flexible 14-carat alloy, grant elasticity, mechanical memory and softness that highlights every fountain pen writing quality.

In particular, SCRIBO Extra-Flexible nib, a real jewel for handwriting, reached the highest hand-writing performance thanks to the continuous technical improvements that have been made during our previous experience.

Our Extra Extra Fine nib, with a line width of around 0.3 / 0.4 mm, is perfect for those who love extremely thin and rigorous writing.
Our Extra Fine nib, with a line width of around 0.5 / 0.6 mm, is suitable for those who love a very thin and precise writing.
For those who prefer a thin and strong writing, our Fine nib is the most suitable choice, with its line width of around 0.7 / 0.8 mm.
Our Medium nib, with a line width of around 0.9 / 1.0 mm, is perfect for those who love medium-sized writing with a strong and precise flow.
Our Broad nib, with a line width of about 1.1 / 1.2 mm, offers a fluid and abundant writing, ideal if you prefer a thicker writing.
Our BB nib provides a writing line of 1.3/1.4 mm and is an excellent alternative for those who like a broad, steady line.
Our special triple B nib, with a line width of about 1.7/1.8 mm, is very generous with ink and capable of leaving a well-marked and visible mark.
Our special Stub nib has a very wide tip and the bottom is cut into a cylinder section. It shows a considerable variation in the line width thickness between the vertical writing, of about 1.1 mm, and the horizontal one of about of 0.4/0.3 mm.
This special nib is cut at 52 degree on the tip to offer a wide, soft and precise writing surface. When used with the 52° inclination, the nib offers incredible uniformity in writing width, similar to a Broad. The more the nib is raised to the vertical, the finer the writing width becomes.
Our Extra Fine Flex nib offers an excellent variety of writing widths: from 0.5/0.6 mm at closed tips, up to 1.8 mm at open tips.
The line variation of our Flex Fine nib starts from 0.7/0.8 mm at closed tips and reach 2.0 mm at open tips.
Our Flexible Medium nib, with a writing width of 0.9/1.0 mm at closed tips, reaches 2.2 mm at open tips.
Our Broad Flex nib offers an excellent variety of writing widths: from 1.1/1.2 mm at closed tips, up to 2.5 mm at open tips.

LA DOTTA Campanula

Over 500 years ago Ulisse Aldrovandi was born in Bologna, a leading figure in modern science who is still considered a reference for contemporary Italian naturalists.

For the University of Bologna, he is the first scientist whose manuscripts, notes and letters are preserved: a treasure trove of information gathered by a man with a far-reaching curiosity.

Today, we owe our visual imagery of nature to Ulisse Aldrovandi and that first generation of naturalists. An imagery built on the tradition of nature illustrations, which perhaps nowhere as in Bologna saw such an extraordinary growth, and which would one day turn into the photographs and documentaries we all know.

Many of these flowers and plants studied and cataloged by Ulisse Aldrovandi can be seen today at the Botanical Garden of Bologna, which he himself founded in 1568 to provide students with a practical tool for cultivating and analyzing the plants treated during the lessons.

Nature never ceases to amaze us and every time we look at it we find a source of inspiration: our new fountain pens of LA DOTTA collection are dedicated to some of these flowers, Campanula Bononiensis and Ninfea (Water Lily).

A mother-of-pearl and iridescent lilac of the Campanula reminds us of the bell-shaped flowers, one species of which has been given a name linked to our city.

A grey/blue with lilac streaks of the Ninfea, on the other hand, reminds us of those aquatic plants with their roots anchored in the earth at the bottom of ponds that suddenly reveal their floating flowers.

Both embellished by platinum trim, the DOTTA Campanula and Ninfea are made in only 219 pieces per colour.
