Visconti is delighted to announce the launch of the new il Magnifico Green Marble, the fifth edition from the iconic il Magnifico series. Inspired by one of the most renowned figures of the Florentine Renaissance, Lorenzo 'Il Magnifico' de' Medici, the Visconti il Magnifico collection personifies the essence of the Renaissance period, combining luxurious and precious materials. For this latest launch, genuine Verzino marble is complemented by an aged silver cap and trims.
Lorenzo de' Medici was an Italian Statesman and a 15th century Ruler of the Florentine Republic. Considered one of the most powerful and enthusiastic patrons of the Renaissance age, he was commonly known as Lorenzo "il Magnifico" (the Magnificent) by his contemporary Florentines as he was an influential businessman, diplomat, politician and a patron of scholars.
The pen celebrates Lorenzo de' Medici's great passion for art in striking green marble. The pen's body is made of green Verzino marble, extracted from the quarries of Frabosa, a small town in the province of Cuneo, characterized by delicate nuances in light shades of grey and green, which give the pen an authoritative and elegant appearance.. The marble body is octagonal shaped and inspired by the Baptistery of Florence, formed using specific, high-precision machinery. Visconti's 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 Visconti's expert Florentine craftsmen. The iconic Ponte Vecchio clip is rendered in aged silver, expertly accenting the pen's Verzino marble body. The top of the cap is enriched with the ancient coat of arms of the Medici family.
The il Magnifico Black Marble is available as a fountain pen and rollerball. The fountain pen features Visconti's famous power filling system and hook safe lock and is presented in a custom il Magnifico limited edition box to match the pen. The il Magnifico Green Marble collection is limited to 188 pieces worldwide.
