MATERIALS

Made of Mount Etna basaltic lava and resin, this pen is both incredibly resistant and original.

CLOSURE

The cap locks on to the pen with the Visconti hook safe system. A delicate twisting motion suffices to close the pen while it opens by pushing the cap down and turning it lightly.

CLIP

The iconic arched Visconti clip is decorated with black enamel.

METAL FITTINGS

All the metal parts are finished with a shiny black galvanic treatment.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

For the first time in the writing instrument world, a pen has been forged out of lava.
Visconti artisans follow a secret procedure that combines the basaltic lava from Mount Etna to resin to obtain a surprisingly smooth and pleasant texture.

LAVA

Lava is an extremely abrasive material which requires special techniques and custom-made tools.
Before assembly, each piece of the pen must be carefully polished until it reaches its soft, leathery final texture.

Visconti

Visconti’s history began in Florence, Italy. A cradle of art and culture, Florence also known for being home to one of the Country’s largest industrial districts for luxury and fashion.

The company is the brainchild of Luigi Poli and Dante del Vecchio, two friends who met in Florence and decided to turn a common passion into business by founding Visconti on October 20, 1988.

On that date, luxury writing instruments began to make their way in a city that was strongly linked to jewellery, leather goods and any other form of art. Over time, Visconti products became iconic pieces that helped to spread Italian values worldwide: design and creativity, craftsmanship and innovation, quality and luxury.
