Visconti Saturno Collection, Green Lapetus Limited Edition Fountain Pen
Visconti pays tribute to the 2nd largest planet in our solar system, Saturn. This giant planet has an average radius that is nine times that of Earth and is the 6th planet from our sun. Saturn is named after the Roman god of agriculture and is best known for its prominent ring system that was discovered in 1610 by the Italian astronomer Galileo. Sixty-two moons are known to orbit Saturn, of which fifty-three are officially named. Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, and the second-largest in the Solar System, is larger than the planet Mercury.
