Visconti OPERA MASTER ANTARCTICA
The iconic Visconti Opera Master returns to the collection in a version inspired by the mysterious ice deserts of Antarctica.
The vast extents of ice and water that characterise Antarctica present us with a beautiful contrast of colours between white and light blue.
Opera Master Antarctica recreates the cold landscapes of this unknown land by combining colours with the transparency of demonstrator pens, giving the illusion of an frozen object to the touch.
Antarctica is Earth's southernmost continent.
Situated almost entirely south of the Antarctic Circle and surrounded by the Southern Ocean, it contains the geographic South Pole.
Antarctica is the fifth-largest continent, being nearly twice the size of Australia, and has an area of 14,200,000 km2 (5,500,000 sq mi).
Most of Antarctica is covered by ice, with an average thickness of 1.9 km.
Antarctica is on average the coldest, driest, and windiest of the continents, and has the highest average elevation. It is mainly a polar desert, with annual precipitation of 200 mm along the coast and far less inland.
About 70% of the world's freshwater reserves are frozen there, which if melted would raise global sea levels by over 60 metres.

We got inspired by the beauty of the Tuscan land with its splendid hills and fields of wheat to create the Homo Sapiens Tuscan Hills, a collection that tells a story of the encounter between the essence of modern man and the beauty of the surrounding nature. The green and brown veins on the body of the pen reflect the variety of colours of the enchanting Tuscan landscape and the play of shadows created on the ground by the orderly rows of cypresses, the undisputed protagonists of the hills
Our master craftsmen have recreated in the acrylic resin the game of lights and shadows of the Tuscan landscape by mixing swirls of green and brown. The pens are made and polished in our Visconti workshop. Because the pen is a Demonstrator model and therefore see-through in parts, all the resin components have to be minutely and manually polished both on the outside and the inside with little felt polishing tools. The Homo Sapiens Tuscan Hills pen uses the patented Visconti hook safe capping mechanism. All the pen’s metal parts are made in silver.
