The Alleria Grotta Azzura is a handmade fountain pen turned from precious resin. The Grotta Azzura or Blue Grotto is a sea cave on the coast of the Island of Capri, southern Italy. During Roman times, the grotto was used as the personal swimming spot of Emperor Tiberius as well as a marine temple decorated with several statues of the Roman sea gods Neptune and Triton. The precious resin of the pen swirls with the mysterious blues of Tiberius's sacred sanctuary. 

The Alleria is a full-sized modern classic, measuring in at 142mm capped. The pen has been turned from Italian precious resin and its marbled finish smacks of sophistication. The barrel threads are unique, being at the foot of the grip section, they facilitate a tight seal and a graceful capping experience.

The well-sprung Ruthenium-plated clip is made using an ancient goldsmith’s process called “lost wax casting”. The cap and the barrel together have five trim rings that confer a neo-classic look. The result: a fountain pen with a modern silhouette and a strikingly attractive color combination that smacks Italian craftsmanship. With a smooth piston filling mechanism, huge ink capacity, and a range of nib options, Gioia pens are here to stay.
