Florence flows through Visconti pens as thoroughly as the ink. All Visconti pens are produced in this beautiful Italian city. Most models pay homage to inspiring artisans including van Gogh, Rembrandt and Michelangelo. Visconti creations reflect the care, time, craftsmanship and passion often displayed in the works of these masters.
Visconti has combined the iconic Divina pen design with the magical Wall Street celluloid finish. The result is the new Divina Metropolitan collection of fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints. These swirling "Divine Proportion" pens look absolutely stunning in either pearl grey or green; and all are accented with palladium plated steel trim. Fountain pens feature the Visconti 23k palladium Dreamtouch® nib. A divine way to put ink on paper. Rollerballs have a unique back-loaded refill. Both these two-piece pens employ the popular "hook safe lock" to keep their caps firmly in place. Twist ballpoints use an unbelievable variety of refills. All in all, one of the best combinations we have ever seen.
Divina by Visconti plays upon ancient themes of perfect proportions. The five-sided spiral crafted in bronze steel rods are buried in swirls of green resin. The fountain pen's filling system is through the top of the body and is referred to as 'Pull and Turn". You simply pull the knob out a bit and twist to fill the reservoir; that's it. The nib is 14k gold. The rollerball uses a standard-sized refill. The ballpoint is a precision twist-action. It is a one-piece, drop dead gorgeous, piece of jewelry.
It seems impossible to believe that Visconti introduced the popular Homo Sapiens series just a few years ago. So many of our customers have selected this popular design, it seems like it has been around for decades. The new Visconti Homo Sapiens Elegance collection is yet another twist on these amazing fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints. Lustrous black resin is now paired with palladium trim. The 23k palladium Dreamtouch nib is featured on fountain pens and is the smoothest nib we have ever tried; but the fill system has changed to accommodate both cartridge or bottled-ink users. Shiny, lighter weight and more economical – those are the differences.
The Manhattan skyline is always changing. Most often as a sign of prosperity and growth. Visconti now updates its original 1994 Manhattan design with the Manhattan Magma collection of fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints.

Fans worldwide will recognize the lava flow pattern on the round, resin body, an iconic Visconti tribute to the earth's natural powers. Fountain pen fans know all about the smooth writing Visconti 23k palladium DREAMTOUCH™ nib. Simply, the Manhattan Magma is a stunning new collection from the Italian artisans at Visconti.
In 1930 Battista Pinin-Farina established the world-famous design house of Pininfarina. Notably, more than 100 Ferrari cars have been designed by Pininfarina. In 1986, the third generation of the Pininfarina family created Pininfarina Extra to extend the design capabilities of the company outside the automotive sector. Pininfarina Extra attempts to blend the most advanced features of scientific, technological and engineering research with pleasing aesthetics in things we use every day. The Visconti-Pininfarina collaboration began in 2009. Pininfarina provided the innovative design and Visconti made it work impeccably. The Visconti Pininfarina Disegno fountain pen sports a Smarttouch Tubular chromium nib in fine, medium or broad point. Designed for use with a cartridge or converter for bottled ink. The deep black resin with stainless steel trim is available in a rollerball as well as ballpoint. Order yours today.
Visconti has added a stealthy black on black and brought back their popular purple and ivory. These new finishes are added to traditional blue and red and the Special Ops green model. The Rembrandt range uses a central design theme dating from the Renaissance period known as chiaroscuro; the playful contrast of light and dark. Under light, these contrasts are most profound. The central cast ring is finely engraved with motifs used by Rembrandt. The magnetic locking closure literally attracts the cap to the two-piece pen body. A twist ballpoint also features the iconic Visconti clip, designed for durability.
Take pen in hand and lose yourself in the fields of Saint-Rémy in southern France. Two new finishes join the Visconti van Gogh collection. Luscious greens, yellows, browns and blues swirl together in honor of van Gogh's Irises, painted near the end of his year-long stay at the asylum in Saint-Rémy. Rich browns are combined with touches of green, yellow and white to remind one of the Pollard Willow watercolor painted by van Gogh in 1882. These fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints join the Starry Night and Self Portrait series. The subtle 18 faceted sides enhance the unique design in each vivid color. All are trimmed in silver with the name of the artist and painting delicately engraved on the center ring. The Visconti magnetic locking closure magically recaps your fountain pen or rollerball. All van Gogh ballpoints utilize a Parker-style refill which deploys with a simple twist. Fountain pens feature a fine, medium or broad steel nib and include a converter, but no cartridges. Rollerballs refill with any standard refill offered by assorted manufacturers. An amazing bonus is the dynamic gift box featuring a reproduction of the original artwork.
