Visconti celebrates the brand’s Florentine origins with a tribute to the Medici family, one of the greatest dynasties in Italian history; the noble house stood out for their political, financial and cultural influence on the city Florence, but most of all for their passionate contribution to the development of Humanism and the Italian Renaissance.
The Medici pen features an eight-facet design like the Florentine baptistery, a religious place and a symbol of the city’s glorious past, enhanced by the Lily emblem engraved on the center band. The shape of this writing instrument features balanced golden proportions, enhanced by acrylic resin mixed with bright silk fibers in a color that quietly and beautifully evokes the fine semi-precious stone mosaics that embellish the Medici villas.
The Visconti Medici Midi fountain pen's unique 8-sided barrel represents the baptistery of Florence. It keeps the pen in place when resting on a flat surface. Made from Acrosilk, a unique material made from acrylic resin and silk fibers. The result is a luminescent wood-like swirl. Palladium trim.
