The name Visconti is synonymous with writing instruments of extraordinary beauty. This Florentine company was established in 1988 and is headed by Dante Del Vecchio, whose passion for vintage writing implements led to Visconti’s unique collection, which reflects tradition as well as today’s most advanced techniques. The company’s fountain pens, rollers and ballpoints are renowned for their uniquely charismatic designs — including limited-edition deluxe fountain pens featuring real jewels. Designed in the company’s 15th-century villa, these stylish pens have been used to sign a number of historic political documents.
Visconti’s fine pens make a statement when you're signing one. The luxe Opera Element and Opera Club feature celluloid-and-resin barrels with a striking marbleized look; both options are also available in ballpoint and roller style. Treat yourself to one or give one as a gift. Either way, it'll leave a welcome mark.
