VISCONTI: VERTIGO FOUNTAIN PEN A MODERN CLASSIC
Brands from the 1980s usually have a certain stigma attached: maybe because they use to be a little flashy, but always having appeal. These manufacturers also typically lack the experience of having a trial and error period to perfect their craft. Yet, Visconti has escaped all these to become one of the most beloved luxury fountain pen brands in the world.
Born out of Florence, Italy, Visconti quickly soaked up the world’s fashion and luxury scene. The pen design comes from two valid pen users; it’s no wonder that each Visconti pen today feels both luxurious and expertly crafted. The creativity in these pens is also hard to deny. The use of volcanic lava and unidirectional carbon. Even a double capacity ink reservoir and a new pen cap lock system. Visconti also prides itself on hand-painted pens and other unique designs. All these make Visconti a leader in the modern fountain pen world.
There have been some concerns in the past about the quality control of Visconti pens. Fear no more. The brand took specific steps to ensure that each pen is of an impeccable build.

Just the aesthetics of the pen make it one of our favorites. Even if you are not a pen aficionado, you have to agree that this Vertigo fountain pen is beautiful.
According to Visconti, the design of the cap and the body also creates a reflective plane surface that runs one after the other, causing a change of points of view. Each shift in perspective almost leads to a sense of vertigo – and yes, we agree!
