Visconti was founded in 1988 by Dante Del Vecchio in Florence, Italy. Located in a 15th century villa, Visconti hand-crafts each writing instrument to demonstrate the highest level of artistry and beauty. Each creation is a true masterpiece, reflecting Visconti’s passion for history, art, science, literature, and human culture. Each year, Visconti debuts new and exciting writing systems as an expression of their endless search for the finest materials and cutting-edge technological innovations. The pens cease to be simple writing instruments, and instead, act as canvases on which new artistic expressions are painted and deep emotions are communicated. Visconti is one of the leading brands of fine writing instruments in the world today.
