Visconti Venetia Limited Edition Fountain Pen
This pen is lovingly used and comes with a 23k Palladium Medium nib. It does not come with box, but comes with papers and the crystal inkwell.
Founded in 421 A.D., Venice is without a shadow of a doubt a masterpiece of nature, consolidated along 400 years of barbaric invasions and not just projected by some architect’s hand.
Throughout the 7th century A.D. Venice, a Sea Republic, has represented the main connection between East and West. This position highly contributed to its cultural development, allowing Venice to become one of the finest cities in Europe and later on during the Renaissance one of the most influential on the art, the architecture and the literature of the time.
After almost one thousand years of complete independence, on May 12, 1797, the doge Ludovico Manin and the High Council were constrained to abdicate. Napoleon consequently proclaimed the Temporary Government of the Town and yielded Venice to the Austro – Hungarian Empire.
In 1866 Venice joined the Reign of Italy. This annexation was enforced the same year by the October 21 plebiscite with a favorable electorate vote of 99.9%.
After 2009’s Florentia fountain pen Visconti pays tribute to another great Italian town – Venice: not only an icon of our Made in Italy but also a destination loved by millions of visiting tourists each year.
Aware of having recreated the Venetian atmosphere in this work of art, Visconti warmly invites you to visit the wonderful Venice.
The Venetia limited edition is a masterpiece of symbols and icons ; it will make you live an emotion: you will feel Venice and its world right there, in your hands: its canals, gondolas, bridges, and renaissance windows are artfully etched onto the 925 sterling silver filigree overlay. The black resin barrel is adorned with a unique clip shaped like the bow of a gondola and set with 10 blue swarovski crystals and a single pearl. The fountain pen offers the amazingly flexible Visconti 23K 950 palladium nib.
