What do bicycles have to do with pens? Nothing. There is only a memory that makes me feel a particular bond with the Officina line (“officina” means mechanical workshop in Italian). My grandfather Renato had a mechanical workshop with lathes and cutters with which he built handcrafted bicycles. At the beginning of the 1950s, with the advent of motorcycles in a hilly terrain like ours, the activity became obsolete and ended. A few years later, when I was about ten years old, I found and kept an old wooden box with metal objects that had a strange form. For some years afterwards it was a treasure that I tried keeping secret. In November 1999 I found myself in a modern mechanical workshop and while I was looking around I saw the same objects. Forty years later they still fascinated me with their beautiful shapes and I wanted to let others appreciate them not as mechanical tools and so “Officina, Writing Instruments” were born.
