THE MEDICIS AND FLORENCE

The history of Florence and the Medici are entwined, one cannot exist without the other. It is almost impossible to wander around the city without finding a symbol of the great dynasty that ruled Florence throughout the entire Renaissance.

THE BAPTISTRY AND THE LILY

The Medici pen has eight facets just like the Florence baptistery whilst the chiseled lily on the metal band has been a symbol of the Tuscan capital for over two millennia.

MATERIALS

The combination of precious resin and silk fiber give the Medici pens a glossy and elegant effect.

THE GOLDEN RATIO

The Golden Ratio was used to design the relationship between the length of the pen and the cap. This mathematical proportion, often used in nature, symbolises the ideal of perfection and harmony. The pen’s 8 facets give extra luminosity and a pleasant tactile sensation. The relationship between the barrel and cap sizes follow the golden ratio.

FLORENTINE MOSAICS

The Medici fountain pen’s colours recall the exquisite Florentine mosaics one can find in many Medici villas.

Medici
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.
