Who we are

The Stipula pen is manufactured in Florence and is part of the great Antiche Fabbriche Riunite Project.

Antiche Fabbriche Riunite is an integral part of a multinational group and delegates her sister company Idea Prima to the coordination of operations in the writing sector. Idea Prima has its headquarters in an ancient Augustinian convent structure (church of Sant'Agostino and Santa Cristina), the only example of Florentine Baroque, located in the heart of the city, on the top of the hill that looks from the east to the main monuments and the River Arno. The multinational team, which Idea Prima belongs to, is present with its own structures almost all over the world and has been active for years in the luxury and fashion sector. The Company gathers a group of brand marketing and design professionals, with great experience in the field of design, creation and distribution of products for integrated marketing communication. The company is also directly involved in the food sector (with various production units) as well as in the writing sector. In the latter sector, the Company is engaged in the manufacture of exclusive products both for its own brands and for third-party brands, including Venvstas, of which it is also a licensee. The company is also among the main Italian distributors of import brands and has contributed over time to the launch and diffusion in Italy of brands such as Manuscript, Kaweco, Retro 51, KWZ, Private Reserve inks, Diplomat, Amodex, El Casco etc., thus giving continuity to over one hundred years of history of Quality Writing.
