LA DOTTA Piella

To “discover” something means to make it visible, to reveal it, just like when you disclose a beautiful view by opening an apparently dull, little window. It also means, however, to be able to open yourself to the world through an attitude of curiosity to the world itself. It is to the ability to wonder that we dedicate our new fountain pen LA DOTTA Piella, with its mosaic blue.

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 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 special triple B nib, with a line width of about 1.6 / 1.7 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.

Description

LA DOTTA Piella

While walking under the porticoes of Bologna, you can come across a small window able to induce, to whoever opens it, a sense of wonder. The “finestrella” is placed at via Piella, one of the many busy little streets of the city centre. Once opened, it reveals the Moline canal: a watercourse, mostly hidden underground, which becomes visible in that area of the city flowing among the balconies of the houses. By looking from that small window you see the typical red of the Bolognese buildings interfacing not only with the blue of the sky but with another, unexpected, type of blue coming from the light dancing on the water. You observe Bologna reflecting on a canal that you would have never imagined finding there and you start to wonder about the beauty of the unforeseen.

To “discover” something means to make it visible, to reveal it, just like when you disclose a beautiful view by opening an apparently dull, little window. It also means, however, to be able to open yourself to the world through an attitude of curiosity to the world itself.

It is to the ability to wonder that we dedicate our new two fountain pens from LA DOTTA collection: Piella, with its mosaic blue, and Moline, with a mother of pearl light blue. Their names and colours – accompanied by ruthenium trims – refer to the water as a hidden and unexpected treasure of our city, Bologna, once surrounded by watercourses that are now covered. We have chosen this hidden gem as a symbol of the importance of letting oneself always be surprised, also, why not, by new writing experiences.

Like the other fountain pens from the collection LA DOTTA, also Piella and Moline are available with different nibs: the 18-carat gold nib with Extra Extra Fine, Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad and Stub. The exclusive 14-carat gold Flexible nib is also available in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium and Broad writing.

With only 219 handcrafted pieces for each color, Piella and Moline come with an ebonite feeder and a piston filling system that guarantees a soft and generous, at the same time precise writing, able to provide a writing experience of the highest quality to be discovered.
