Fountain Pen Medici Rose Gold
The fountain pen Medici Rose Gold is a tribute to the Medici family, one of the most important dynasties in Italian history, who had a great influence on Florence and on the growth of Humanism and the Renaissance.
Some famous artists supported by the Medici are Michelangelo, Raphael, Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci, Masaccio and Brunelleschi.
The tradition of the arts joins Medici and Visconti: many of Visconti's collections, in fact, refer to the history of Florence.
This fountain pen is distinguished by its shape and material.
The shape follows the rules of the golden proportion codified by Leonardo and reminds the eight sides of the baptistery of Florence.
The material is also unique and innovative: this ballpoint pen is made of Acrosilk, a compound of acrylic resins and silk fibres.
The result is a particular shiny and luminous effect with the depth of the colors characteristic of the ancient celluloid. The same color is a tribute to the ancient Florentine mosaics in hard stones, found in the homes of the Medici.
All the metal parts are plated with precious pink gold, while the ring of the barrel is finely chiselled with the lily, symbol of Florence.
Another peculiarity of this fountain pen is certainly the nib made of 23 kt. 950 Palladium.
Palladium has very interesting physical characteristics for the production of fountain pens, especially thanks to its hardness and resistance to corrosion and for these reasons, unlike gold, it can be used almost pure.
This pen is dedicated to the new generations and allows them to use a writing instrument out of time and bearer of immutable values of art and history.
