About Dario...

PLEASE write your CITY + DATE at the top of your card (ex: Los Angeles • March 26, 2021)


I'm from Italy, but I've been living in the US since 2006, and I just opened a little shop on Etsy: scriptoriaregalia.etsy.com. I ♥ reading, writing, beautiful penmanship, thoughtful details, and exchanging meaningful notes.

What you write on the postcard is very important to me. Please share a poem or a quote you love, a meaningful life story, or anything else that will make the postcard a treasure when I find it again tucked in a book or somewhere else in the years to come.
