Stores with large selection at the higher end in Rome?



Recommended Posts

marlinspike

I will be in Rome later this year. Is there any particular store that will have an especially large selection at the higher end (not crazy high, just 500 euro and up) of Italian made pens?

End of the summer?  As in August?

 

Novelli won’t be open, among other things.   Everyone’s still at the beach.

No, mid fall.

be sure to fill up your wallet, just the tour of the four shops Fabri00 mentioned above will set you a notable amount,

not that they are extremely expensive, just that it's hard to walk out empty handed... :D

And for  anybody who stumbles across that link if you're departing EU through  CDG good luck with getting your VAT paperwork filled out.

Great City- love the place

I visit Marco at Novelli when I can- very helpful guy and the store is a delight

Highly recommended - in fact I just bought another pen from him yesterday- online and he will ship by post

Another vote for Marco and Novelli.  Tip -- if there are some particular pens of brands he carries that you are interested in, contact him ahead of time so that he can try to be sure to have them in the store during your visit.  He and his staff speak English.

Stilo Fetti gets my vote. They’re close to the Pantheon and it’s good to get a granita di caffé next door before browsing.

Novelli. One of the world’s great pen shops. 

Too many pens; too little writing.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
