I'm Caterina, I live in Italy and I am as you can imagine a... Fountain Pen Lover!
I am really proud to be a member of this rinomate Forum where I hope to expand my knowledge on fountain pens world!
I'm not fussy about pens, but it's not that I like them all. In my opinion, a good pen must, first of all, write well and then be original! So I'm often selective and it takes me a while to choose a new fountain pen.
I really like the Pelikan, like design and writing experience ... fantastic nibs! But in Italy, fortunately we can boast prestigious production companies like Aurora, Montegrappa, Delta... just to name a few. So I really appreciate Italian style! I have a passion for vintage fountain pens but for now still none! ( yeah, that's strange...).
I also like Calligraphy and all its nuances, I delight sometimes with dip pen and ink ... I still have a lot to learn!
Besides the Fountain Pens (this beautiful sport) I have some other hobbies, including Music: I'm a pianist. But since, here we talk about fountain pens ... I'll stop right away!
And that's all ... I apologize for my English that I hope is grammatically correct. I have a good knowledge of English but I live in Italy and obviously, I don't have the opportunity to practice it often. Last summer I've been a month in Ireland ( wonderful Land!) to improve it ... I know, it's not much, but better than nothing!
