Visconti Medici Fountain Pen - Rose Gold, Extra Fine Nib
The Medici Rose Gold is the latest addition to Visconti's iconic Medici collection. The Visconti Medici fountain pen features an 18k rose gold nib, rose gold trim, has an 8-sided faceted body and is crafted from an exclusive material named Acrosilk, a compound of acrylic resin and silk fibers.
The Medici collection is faceted with eight sides like the baptistery of Florence. The shape is made following the rules of Divine Proportion, established by Leonardo da Vinci under the patronship of the Medici family.
The Medici was an Italian banking family, political dynasty, and royal house during the first half of the 15th century in Florence, Italy. Along with other powerful Italian families, the Medici's inspired the birth of the Italian Renaissance through their patronage of the arts and humanism efforts. A significant amount of the art and architecture produced in Florence during the Renaissance was due to the Medici family.
