  • The Homo Sapiens range is new in 2010 and it is the use of materials that makes this fountain pen truly innovative. With the intent of creating an extremely durable daily friend for the real writer, Visconti turned to the Etna volcano to bestow the virtually unbreakable body to this incredibly long lasting writing instrument. The material contains over 50% lava and is mixed with resin to create a fantastically dense, slightly hygroscopic, heat resistant structure that is then polished to provide a beautiful finish that requires no overlay. The bronze accents take their inspiration from the Bronze Age, and their simplistic design sets off the deep basaltic lava perfectly. We love how secure and balanced the Homo Sapiens fountain pen feels to hold, it really lives up to its purpose as a reliable and durable companion.
  • The Homo Sapiens fountain pen has as standard Visconti’s 23k palladium Dreamtouch nib, also new for 2010. The nib requires no pressure to write and the palladium offers qualities of flexibility, originality and resistance to ink corrosion. It is the highest value nib ever known to a fountain pen.

Fountain Pen
Product colour
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. It really seems that Renaissance in Florence is still at its liveliest. Located in a 15th century villa, Visconti keeps being stirred by intellectual flurry, the study of ancient models and of modern techniques in a constant dialogue and exchange of innovative ideas.

This Florentine company established in 1988 is headed by Dante Del Vecchio, deus ex machina of the creative dynamism pervading Visconti creations. Led by his passion for vintage pens, he has been constantly in a quest for new expressions in the art of writing.
