There is a strong link between the art of calligraphy and the excellence of Persol’s Handmade in Italy: the uniqueness of each result. For both, a long and articulated creative work leads to creating a unique and personal work of art.

Persol dedicates a collection to contemporary calligraphers teaming up with one of the world’s leading figures in this art: Paul Antonio Scribe, one of the crown office scribes.

His work of art on glass “Line flows in the arc of life” is a poignant portrayal of what calligraphy truly means to him.
