Florence, the capital of Italy’s Tuscany region, is home to many masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture. One of its most iconic sights is the Duomo, a cathedral with a terracotta-tiled dome engineered by Brunelleschi and a bell tower by Giotto. It’s also the home of pen maker Visconti. It is a major national economic center, as well as a tourist and industrial hub. Where better to craft some of the world’s most beautiful pens?
Visconti has set itself apart from other pen companies with a variety of innovations that they have developed throughout the years. According to Visconti, there is not a single component of the pen that they have not improved upon. Visconti pens stand alone, not only for these technical solutions but also for the quality of each writing instrument. When the rare materials used by Visconti like Gold, Stainless Steel, Titanium, Carbon, and Lava are fashioned into such beautiful technical solutions, it’s impressive, to say the least.
