In 1919, in a Turin marked by the first World War but with great hopes for recovery, Aurora (the dawn), the first Italian fountain pen company, was born. A name which gave a message of hope and rebirth: the new dawn in Italian history and culture. It is the beginning of a unique style passed on from generation to generation; yesterday as today it skillfully combines fine craftsmanship, techniques and precious materials. From its rich cultural heritage and its long tradition, little masterpieces are created and appreciated all over the world, making it a solid example of the most refined Made in Italy.
Born in 1919 in Turin Aurora is today a leading company in the production and marketing of writing instruments, fine leather goods, watches and paper.
The passion for beauty, style and the extraordinary quality of the individual details, the company’s founding values, combined with continuous research, make it a true ambassador of Made in Italy excellence in the world.

CULT OF BEAUTY
Through the constant search for cutting-edge stylistic solutions and the collaboration of internationally renowned designers, Aurora has written some of the most important pages in the history of design.
Just to name a few: in 1947 Marcello Nizzoli created the famous model “88”, a classic writing that has sold over 7 million pieces and is still in production;
in 1970 Marco Zanuso designed HASTIL and THESI, the first writing instruments to be exhibited at the MOMA in New York, still on display alongside the masterpieces of Italian design.
The pen, from a simple writing instrument, is characterized today as an elegant and refined accessory, an unmistakable sign of its own personality, expression of a daily pleasure.
Aurora is the only company in Italy and one of the few in the world to produce the nib, the true heart of the pen, thus offering customers the possibility of choosing their writing style in a fine tailoring perspective, as well as creating for the collectors from all over the world prestigious editions in limited and numbered series.
Best Selling Aurora
It takes two years to create a new Aurora writing instrument. In each model the craftsman tradition and the most advanced working technologies are combined with a knowledgeable and creative research to make unique timeless objects. For instance, each fountain pen with piston filling system has a hidden reservoir, which permits to write even if the ink has apparently run out. One of the Aurora innovations which, during company’s history, has added value and unmistakable appeal to the use of Aurora pens.
