Visconti Torpedo Blue Emotion Rose Gold Fountain Pen (L.E.)
Please note: this pen will be available from November 2019. Reserve yours now!

The Visconti Torpedo pen is inspired by a recent design trend, Bolidismo, born in Italy in the mid-80s by a group of architects and designers who largely attended the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Florence. The founding values of the group were the dynamism of the shapes, somehow a far recall to the Futurism of the early twentieth century, and the reference to design (which strongly influenced the world of cars) and to the Comics strip & of the '30s.
The Torpedo's name alludes both to the model of a car in use from the beginning of the last century up to the 30s (again featuring sleek and sporting shape), and to the English term for torpedo, an obvious example of a shape designed by the need for speed.

Above the carbon fiber of the barrel there is a light metal cover that surrounds two transparent openings which allow to see the internal filing system and the ink; the transparent acrylic resin has been worked in such a way as to be aligned with the carbon fiber and not to be at a lower level, thus contributing to the fluidity of the design.

The fountain pen uses the Power Filler filling system and has an 18 karat gold nib. The pen is limited to 388 pieces.

The name Visconti has been for the past twenty years a synonym for writing instruments of extraordinary beauty, historically and technologically studied. The fountain pens, rollers and ballpoint pens by Visconti make up a wide range of high quality instruments with a strong identification.

La Couronne du Comte is one of the few Visconti Gold Point Members. A Gold Point Member has extensive knowledge on pens in general and Visconti pens in particular. Every Gold Point Member has to meet the high Visconti standards.
