Visconti Romanica Fountain Pen.-Through history, Europeans considered themselves “united,” but commercially they always competed. Even though they always search for their common roots, tending to bind together. Probably, because of this, they have recently created the European Constitution. Visconti saw the similarity that European towns have when compared to each other. Often their cities are placed on hills, with winding small roads, and with the same religious symbols. Churches and cathedrals represent a common thread too, in the “European” lifestyle.
Luigi Poli and Dante del Vecchio, two friends who also met in Florence, both decided to turn a common passion into a business. They founded Visconti pens on October 20, 1988. The first pen collection launched by the company was named “Classic”; the pens used celluloid, an excellent material also employed in numerous pen collections. They had such a success that the next year, in 1989, the company developed “Urushi,” their first limited edition of 100 pieces.
