Visconti pens. The name Visconti has been for the past
twenty years a synonym for writing instruments of extraordinary beauty,
historical and technologically studied. The fountain pens, rollers and
ballpoint pens by Visconti make up a wide range of high quality instruments
with a strong identification.
It really seems that Renaissance in Florence
is still at its liveliest. Located in a 15th century villa, Visconti keeps
being stirred by intellectual flurry, the study of ancient models and of modern
techniques in a constant dialogue and exchange of innovative ideas.
This Florentine company established in 1988 is headed by Dante
Del Vecchio, deus
ex machina of the creative dynamism pervading
Visconti creations. Led by his passion for vintage pens, he has been constantly
in a quest for new expressions in the art of writing.
Visconti love for history and zeal for innovation, the
craftsmen's skills rediscovering, and the development of increasingly more
sophisticated systems are combined with the research of unforgettable shades of
colour, design and naturalness to create Visconti pens and make them instantly
recognizable. From this blend new writing instruments have been developed to
offer a meaningful contribution in content, innovation and design.
Every pen witnesses art, archaeology, philosophy, mathematics,
literature, history or current events, and much more than that.
Visconti regularly pays tribute to anything which has left a mark in man's
civilisation. Some of the inspiring themes include the Forbidden City, the
ancient knights, the Alchemical Opus, but also Manhattan and Giacomo
