The Gioia Capodimonte fountain pen in red and black ebonite with gold trim and a 14k gold nib
Capodimonte means "top of the hill".
The Royal Palace of Capodimonte (in Italian: Reggia di Capodimonte) is a large palace in Naples, Italy. It was formerly the summer residence and hunting lodge of the Bourbon kings of the Two Sicilies, one of the two royal palaces in Naples. Today, it comprises the National Museum of Capodimonte and the Royal Forest . The palace was constructed on its somewhat cooler hilltop location just outside the city, with urban Naples ultimately expanding around it.
From an idea of Fabio Cervasio and the collaboration of great master craftsmen with twenty years of experience in the pen production sector, "GIOIA writing emotion" was born with Neapolitan genius and imagination. As early as 2014, Gioia Pen Italia's technical laboratory and artisan workshop began on commissions for well-known Italian, international and institutional brands, to design and produce wonderful writing instruments. Gioia Pen Italia produces fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoint pens with rigorous quality controls, hand turned from bars full of resins produced in Italy, ebonite, celluloid etc., with the aid of mechanisms, nibs and refills recognized throughout the world. Finally, in 2020, Gioia Pen Italia has decided to get the attention of the whole world.
Gioia means Joy in Italian and is pronounced 'Joya'
