Fortuna was the Goddess of Fortune, the personification of luck according to the ancient Romans. Fortunas identity as the embodiment of chance events was closely tied to virtus, or strength of character.
Public officials who lacked this quality invited ill-fortune on both themselves and Rome. We believe that hand-writing is an essential element of the education process and an indispensable function, even in todays hurried, digitised society. For this reason, we have created our new Fortuna collection, with an eye to those who still indulge in the pleasure of writing. It is our wish that these pens will engender the good luck that they deserve.
