Montegrappa salutes Dante Alighieri – writer of The Divine Comedy and father of the Italian language. 700 years after Dante’s death, his virtuosity continues to enchant readers, artists and academics alike. Now, the fascination reaches new heights with the epic sequel to Inferno. Handcrafted in Italy oldest pen manufactory, Dante Alighieri: Purgatorio brings the supreme poet’s tale of hope and redemption to life in your hand: combining high-precision micro-sculpting with heavenly writing performance. From blind cap to top disc, every intricate element recounts Dante and Virgil’s ascent of Mount Purgatory. A clip comprising gold and silver keys marks their passage through Peter’s Gate. Lost-wax casting meticulously reconstructs Purgatory’s seven terraces and their punishments. For Dante to ascend, angels must absolve him of Peccatum (sin) – a detail marked in fine relief. Earthly Paradise and the cleansing waters of the river Lethe are realised in cloisonné. Here, Dante is reunited with Beatrice, and is prepared for his ascent to heaven. Limited editions of sterling silver (333 pcs.) and 18K gold (9 pcs.) encompass fountain pen and rollerball options. Both observe the poet’s use of the trinity as a lyrical and structural device.
