The Visconti Il Magnifico Black Marble collection is the fourth edition inspired by Lorenzo de Medici, an emblematic figure of the Florentine Renaissance.
Lorenzo de' Medici (1 January 1449 – 8 April 1492) was an Italian statesman, de facto ruler of the Florentine Republic and the most powerful and enthusiastic patron of Renaissance culture in Italy.
Also known as Lorenzo the Magnificent (Lorenzo il Magnifico) by contemporary Florentines, he was a magnate, diplomat, politician and patron of scholars, artists, and poets.
As a patron, he is best known for his sponsorship of artists such as Botticelli and Michelangelo. He held the balance of power within the Italic League, an alliance of states that stabilized political conditions on the Italian peninsula for decades, and his life coincided with the mature phase of the Italian Renaissance and the Golden Age of Florence.
This Visconti limited edition fountain pen is a celebration of his great passion for art and the noble black marble.
In this collection, the pen’s bodies are made of Portoro marble, a kind found only in Italy, in the province of La Spezia.
This limited edition pen possesses all the features that have made the Il Magnifico series famous.
The use of marble elevates this writing instrument into a work of art.
Visconti Il Magnifico Black Marble
The body of the pen is made of Portoro marble, known for its golden streaks that range from deep yellow to honey, and considered the most precious of black marbles.
The intense black colour comes from the strong presence of organic matter while the process of oxidation gives life to its striking golden veins.
The Portoro marble body of the pen is shaped into the iconic octagonal shape inspired by the Baptistery of Florence, using specific high-precision machinery.
Our semi-precious stone expert craftsmen manually polish each of the pen’s components before assembling them. Lilies, the symbol of the city of Florence, are meticulously engraved on the aged bronze parts by our expert Florentine craftsmen.
The iconic Ponte Vecchio clip is plated in pink gold and embellished with a black enamel reminiscent of Portoro marble.
