  • Recent and decidedly modern this museum located in the factory of the mythical Aurora; a brand that has well been able to overcome the crisis of a niche product, such as 'fountain' and "design", converting it into a luxury object. A succession of multimedia installations that deal with the evolution of 'writing' over the centuries; in truth, let me allow the designers of the museum, a little what is missing are just the 'objects': from a pen manufacturer I would have expected a much greater number of objects to write (Aurora or others); for example there is the mythical Hastil but the Thesi is missing! However, for future developments it is certainly not the space that is missing! In any case, it remains a place that a fan of industrial history or simply culture should not be missed if in Turin. Small but interesting book-shop at correct prices (but also here few Aurora products) with attached bar-restaurant (accessible even without going through the Museum). Photos allowed inside. We are on the far northern outskirts of Turin and there are no parking problems; courteous and helpful staff.

  • our visit was different from the usual: we certainly did not "learn", but we "heard" the museum. The visit was in fact part of an initiative of theatrical visits (look for "museums" if you want to know more) and had more aim to live an experience on what the museum could offer, rather than provide a didactic description. That said the museum is NOT an exhibition of Aurora products, but it is a journey into human communication, signs, paper, tools, ink. At specific times you can complete the visit to the museum with a visit to the factory below. we'll come back for it. already, I did not say explicitly: the museum is housed in the spaces of the Aurora fountain pen factory. service information: if you don't find any "committed" in the shop, contact those who work in the café, they will help you without problems. The girl we found yesterday was of a unique courtesy and availability: I would have written this review even just to congratulate her and thank her. one last note: finding among the "thirteen queens" the fountain pen (Aurora) that my wife used for years at school and at university was a priceless moment
