“tHE PEN IS THE TONGUE OF THE SOUL”
Hello, my name is Francesco Cotana. I am a calligrapher and penmaker based in Perugia, Italy. I love writing because I believe that pens, through the art of writing, can unveil much of our selves. I am specialised in commissioned pieces and events invitations. I also create clear penholders for calligraphers and collectors. Don’t hesitate to contact me.
