Hello everyone. Welcome to a new comparison, a new video on our Iguana Sell YouTube channel. Today, we want to present a journey, and we're going on a trip with Aurora, who is introducing a very special and unique collection. It's the Secret Journey of Italy collection. What makes this collection special? Well, it unveils eight cities in Italy, presenting and revealing their secrets – the things that truly make them special and that very few people know about. This collection consists of eight pieces, and so far, only the first four pieces have been released, each featuring specific models representing four specific cities.

Each of these pieces is accompanied by a small illustration that showcases the secret of the city we are visiting and gives us a glimpse into what makes it truly unique. Particularly, the bookmark, which is in the shape of a bookmark, contains a QR code that allows us to download music associated with the city we are visiting. For each city, Aurora has created an illustration that is later reflected in the bookmark, highlighting the key feature of each model.

Each piece also includes an inkwell. This inkwell comes in a color associated with the city and is a limited edition specifically made for each piece in this collection. In essence, Aurora has managed to reflect the entire universe that allows us to land and discover all the charms of these eight cities that make up this collection through the combination of the pen, music, and ink.

The first stop on our journey is Matera. Matera is an Italian city that is a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its famous "Sassi" stone, which is the white-toned stone that I'm sure you all have in mind right now. The great secret of Matera is what is known as the "Palombaro lungo," which is an underground cistern hand-carved into the rock and used to supply water to the entire city. Reflecting the water's shimmer, the Matera piece is predominantly white, inspired by the Sassi stone, but also incorporates various shades of blue, creating a unique and beautiful blend. This allows the piece to evoke both what makes this city truly special and the hidden secret it holds.

The second city in the secret journey of Italy is Volterra. The great secret of Volterra, known to very few, is that it is Europe's most important alabaster quarry. In each of these quarries, different types of alabaster can be found, varying in color and nuances. That's why in this piece, as you can see, we find the classic ochre tones alongside small hints of green. This diverse color range, combined with the rose gold accents, makes it, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful pieces Aurora has created recently. It truly captures the uniqueness, distinctiveness, and little-known secret of Volterra.

The third stage of our journey is Baia. Baia is the city that I believe is the most secret because it is a submerged city. As you can see, the colors of this pen are deep blues, evoking the depth of the sea and its waters. Even in the packaging, we find references to the submerged character of Baia, with illustrations of statues and mosaics that can only be seen through diving. The piece features a composition of various dark and light blue shades, allowing us to imagine what we can encounter if we are fortunate enough to dive into the city of Baia.

Lastly, we arrive at the fourth stop on our Secret Journey through Italy, led by Aurora. This time, it's Burano. Burano is the Venetian city known for its colorful houses. The piece pays a direct tribute to Burano, as you can see, with its absolutely spectacular colors. Legend says that when fishermen returned home at night in the Venetian mist, they weren't sure which house was theirs. Thanks to the vibrant colors, they could easily recognize their homes. Some sources argue that it was a matter of social status. Regardless, when we visit Burano, we are greeted by an explosion of colors that is truly mesmerizing. Aurora has captured this essence exceptionally well in the fourth piece of the collection.

Well, I hope you liked it. It's a beautiful journey that uncovers secrets, and we are eager to see which four cities will be revealed next. What do you think those cities will be? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments, and also let us know which piece you like the most out of these four. If I have to choose one... it's difficult, but I think for now, I'll go with Volterra, but that may change depending on the upcoming pieces. Thank you all very much, and please subscribe to our channel. It's a pleasure to be with you once again.
