The Montegrappa Desiderio collection, Italian for “Desire”, has identified three of the most important human
conditions that feed the poet, the songwriter, the belle-lettrist, the lover. Emozione, Desiderio and Passione form a triumvirate of pen families that express our most powerful thoughts and feelings.
Embodying this in a pen is a challenge that has produced a series of writing instruments imbued with mystery, for it is impossible to explain the power of sheer desire. Desiderio writing instruments are made in pearlised bi-colour resin with
trim in sterling silver.
No two are alike, just as all desires are unique, for the material that forms each cap and body possesses
its own swirling pattern. Montegrappa’s signature octagon accents the top and upon removing the cap, the second colour is also revealed at the writing end of the fountain or the rollerball pen and in the ring cap of the ballpoint and mechanical pencil.
The pencil uses 0.7 mm leads, which can be found here
in our web store.
Italy's first pen manufacturer, Montegrappa, began manufacturing pens in 1912 in its factory in Bassano del Grappa - a picturesque town along the Brenta River, which flows through Alpine foothills in northeastern Italy. Utilizing natural celluloid and precious metals, Montegrappa combines traditional methods such as die-casting with more recent innovations as low-relief engraving to form their precious art objects. Whether they use colors reminiscent of the master painters or ornamentation suggestive of Baroque palaces, the Italian heritage and romance is infused into each product.€ 450,00
