Help To Identify This Aurora

Hi all,

This morning I was helping my father-in-law clear out his study and was lucky enough to find a number of beautiful vintage fountain pens, most of which were easy to bring back to life with a quick clean out. However, my favourite was an Aurora that I've attached below. It's such an unusual nib with indents on either side that I wanted to see if anyone recognised it and could ID it for me.

My father in law remembers this pen being given to him as a farewell gift when he left Italy, so we're guessing that the pen is from about 1982. It's marked as Aurora and the nib is marked as 14K. Any help would be appreciated!

It's quite nice out here in the sunshine...

This model has one of the most fascinating nibs ever produced. The pen was designed by Giugiaro and it's a beauty, taking into account that the time of production was a kind of "dark Age" for fountain pens...

I confirm it's a Kona titanium.

Very beautiful, looks like a Greek column.

The design reminds the Hastil, Marco Polo and Magellan, but also the Lux Auretta.

The main feature that distinguishes them is the thin diameter and usually metal material.
