The second stop of Aurora’s Secret Journey to Italy is Volterra. Famous for its ancient Etruscan historical center, not everyone knows it is an important place for the extraction and processing of alabaster. Dating from 7 million years ago, the Volterra alabaster is the most valuable in Europe and each alabaster quarry has its own distinctive type. The processing of the alabaster is passed down from generation to generation, resulting an ancient practice that is the real secret of Volterra.
The ‘Aurora Il Viaggio Segreto Volterra’ has an 18kt gold nib and uses a piston filling mechanism.
The main sense and synaesthesia of this collection is Hearing.
