Visconti Medici Oversize Fountain Pen
The new Visconti Medici is a prince among pens! The jaw-droppingly handsome collection is crafted in a unique and innovative material from Visconti known as Acrosilk: a special compound of acrylic resin and silk fibers. The result is a fantastic glossy and luminescent woodgrain finish, chosen
as a tribute to the ancient luxury materials used in the princely Medici mansions. The pen’s have a 8-sided, faceted shape following the rules of Divine Proportion, codified by Leonardo da Vinci under the patronage of the Medici. The palladium-plated central band is chiseled with a symbol of the Medici. The Medici was an Italian banking family, political dynasty and royal house that reigned during the 15th century in Florence. Like other powerful Italian families at the time, they inspired the birth of the Renaissance through their patronage of the arts and humanities, commissioning major works from notable artists such as Michelangelo, Raphael, Masaccio and the architect Brunelleschi. The Medici series is offered in an Oversized and Midi fountain
pen with the superbly flexible Visconti 23K 950 palladium Dreamtouch nib and Hook-Safe locking cap. The Oversize fountain pen features a vacuum Power Filler for bottle ink loading. The Midi fountain pen uses ink cartridges or converter. The matching Medici capped rollerball and twist ball pen are exceptional writing companions.
