Italy has over 7.500 kilometers of beautiful coastlines with historical sea places: the culture of the sea comes from ancient times. The Roman empire used to call the Mediterranean Sea "Mare Nostrum ".
Creative style, passion for color, attention to detail, use of unusual materials, combined with Visconti's high-end traditional craftsmanship give rise to the handsome and elegant Portofino. The pen celebrates a beautiful Italian coastal town as well as the passion for the sea and its sports, most of all sailing. The pens stands as a sign of Visconti's capabilities as well as it's owner's personality.
Portofino has a threaded cap which makes it very easy to open and close; different from the normal "snap" system, it does not become loose over time. The Portofino recalls the luxurious feeling of Italian vintage boats: by use of nautical materials such as stainless steel and teak wood. The wood body is enriched with a thin metallic frame and lacquered details, while the cap is decorated with two rose gold metal rings and enamel. The rose gold plated clip is unique to Visconti, revealing the origin of the brand, inspired by the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) in Florence. The fountain pen has the 23 kt Palladium 950 Dreamtouch Rosé Gold nib. The Portofino is also available in a matching rollerball.
