Visconti Pens of Firenze, Italy have been in operation only since 1988, but have already built up a formidable reputation for innovative and beautiful pens. The founder of Visconti, Dante del Vecchio, is a passionate pen enthusiast and operates Visconti from a 15th century Tuscan villa, where he marries traditional and modern manufacturing techniques in pursuit of perfection. The Homo Sapiens range propelled Visconti to the forefront of European pen manufacture with the innovative barrel materials and the stunning Dreamtouch palladium nib. The Visconti range also features the excellent Travelling Inkwell and an unusually wide range of pen refill sizes and colours. Learn more about Visconti here.
