The newish Roma Imperiale had caught my eye, but I'm not sure just what size it is. Has anybody got both it and either a Dolcevita Medium/Piston and/or a Dolcevita OS to take comparison photos? Much appreciated.

I was able to hold the Roma imperiale at the Novelli shop. I cannot give exact figures, but I would that the size is between the MB149 and the MB146, probably closer to the first. Compared to the Dolcevita Piston (but I could not see them side to side) I would say is bigger.

What I can say is that is a terrific pen and I was almost going for it if would not be for the price, really out of my reach.

Roma Imperiale is much bigger than any Dolcevita. I'd dare to say that it's bigger than any other pen I ever saw....

Thank you. Seems I might pass, then. The Dolcevita OS is already just a hair too big.

the pen is big and the nib is smooth but not flexible but quite good for writing on any kind of paper.
Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

I think you do not have a choice to see a Namiki Emperor.

I believe the Roma Imperiale is about the same size as the Danitrio Mikado and Genkai? Which is to say quite a bit smaller than the Namiki Emperor and Conway Stewart Great Exhibition LE, but bigger than pretty much any other useable pen.
