Montegrappa Passione Cinnamon Mechanical Pencil
"Passione" means more to Italians than the obvious heated desire and obsession. It can also mean fondness, the pursuit of a hobby, or the love of a sports team. Whatever definition it is employed for, it always stands for interest beyond the merely passing. It can demonstrate a love so strong that it can barely be contained, whether for a person or a musical genre, for art or sculpture or the theatre, or even for collecting inanimate objects. Like its sibling collection, Desiderio, Passione by Montegrappa can also be inescapably sexy.

The Passione collection is made in celluloid. The nature of this material ensures that the colour patterns of no two pens will be identical, adding a bespoke touch. The trimmings are made of sterling silver.

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.
