Visconti Medici Rose Gold with Extra Fine Nib
The Medici Rose Gold is the latest addition to Visconti's iconic Medici collection. 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.
Following the great success of Visconti's Medici collection released in 2017, we are excited to introduce the Medici Rose Gold, utilizing the same innovative Acrosilk resin combined with 18kt rose gold trims.
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 collection is crafted from a Visconti exclusive material called Acrosilk. The material is a compound of acrylic resin and silk fibers; the result is a fantastic luminescent wooden color, created as a tribute to the ancient luxury materials used in the historic Medici mansions. The Medici Rose Gold features a 23kt Palladium rose gold nib.
