History

With more than 80 years of tradition, today Campo Marzio is a leading brand with its Italian style, design and craftsmanship heritage. Campo Marzio is like a story made of many stories, like many pages within the same book: there are still many pages to be written, together with all the passionate for the writing culture, colours and Italian life-style!

1933

Our history begins in the heart of Rome, into the elegant district known as ‘Campo Marzio’ (hence the name); it was full with picturesque small shops, side by side with international fashion boutiques. The first Campo Marzio small “Bottega Artigiana” (workshop) was specialized in unique and unusual fountain pens. As soon as this Bottega was opened, “Campo Marzio” became immediately popular amongst nobles, politicians and artists for its fine workmanship and unique writing instruments. In the “golden age” of the “Dolce Vita”, Campo Marzio was soon reckoned as "the temple of writing into the Eternal City".

Early nineties

it’s the beginning of a new era for “Campo Marzio”, which turns from local business to an international brand, under the guidance of the three founders Roberto Di Giorgio, Massimiliano Salustri and Augusto Graziani. Strong with its rich cultural and artisanal heritage Campo Marzio broadened its product lines introducing business, travel and personal accessories into its catalogue, characterized through vibrant colours and the unmistakable Italian “touch”. It was only the beginning of a path which brought the values of the original “Bottega Artigiana” all over the world.
