Visconti Unita D’Italia (Unity of Italy) Fountain Pen
To celebrate the sesquicentennial (150th) anniversary of the Unity of Italy, Visconti has designed this special edition writing instrument. The Unita D’Italia borrows the 36-faceted shape of Visconti’s Michelangelo along with the magnetic closure and presents a large engraved ring along the bottom of the cap. This band was then enameled with the colors of the Italian flag: red, white and green. The pen also features the dates 1861-2011, recalling March 17, 1861, when Vitorio Emanuele II was appointed King of Italy. Palladium trim complements the rich black color of the natural resin. This fountain pen uses a convertor and is equipped with a 23kt palladium nib available in F, M, or B. The pen comes in its own special presentation box.
The MSRP on the Visconti Unita D’Italia Fountain Pen is $495
