Anything worth doing twice is worth doing a third time. Visconti revisits the il Magnifico collection with this stunningly beautiful Lapis Lazuli edition. The il Magnifico collection embodies the essence of the Renaissance period, combining luxurious marble and precious metals.
Visconti took inspiration from the Medici art collection for this newest model. The Medici court held one of the most spectacular collections of lapis lazuli objects in Europe.
The il Magnifico Lapis Lazuli features an aged gold vermeil cap and blind cap finely engraved with lily flowers – the symbol of Florence - and the cap finial features the ancient coat of arms of the Medici family.
Limited to just 188 pieces worldwide, the il Magnifico Lapis Lazuli arrives in a beautiful box that doubles as a display case.
History of il Magnifico
Lorenzo de' Medici was a 15th century Italian Statesman and Ruler of the Florentine Republic. Considered one of the most powerful and enthusiastic patrons of the Italian Renaissance, Medici was commonly known as Lorenzo "il Magnifico" (the Magnificent) by his contemporary Florentines for his work as an influential businessman, diplomat and politician and his patronage of scholars, artists and poets.
