On the occasion of their 100th anniversary, Aurora presents the “Cento Italia” collection: 10 iconic pens in the history of Aurora, symbol of the 10 decades, each revisited and produced in only 100 numbered pieces for the whole world (100 for Italy and 100 to Worldwide). 

The sixth pen presented is this rose gold-plated Hastil with a 14kt solid rose gold nib. It fills via proprietary cartridge/converter, and is presented in a special 100th anniversary gift box.

The Aurora Hastil is the 
only fountain pen in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. It was originally designed by Italian architect Marco Zanuso and German industrial designer Richard Sapper in 1970.
