  • Montegrappa dedicates this precious creation to writing: a pen which, through sophisticated symbolism and the customary masterly craftsmanship, celebrates the role of writing as a means of transmitting knowledge (in Greek, sophia) and the development of human thought.
    On the cap is an image of the Rosetta Stone, an archaeological discovery of immeasurable importance. On it appears a single text written in three different language systems (hieroglyphics, demotic, and classical Greek). This allowed to decipher the hieroglyphics. Other symbols of Egyptian civilisation complete the decoration of the cap: samples of hieroglyphics and demotic writing, the sphinx, the pyramids and a representation of Thot, the god of knowledge to whom the Egyptians attributed the invention of writing.
    The barrel of the pen shows an example of Greek and a detail of Raphael's famous fresco "The School of Athens" in which the philosophers Aristotle and Plato and the mathematician and thinker Pythagoras can be seen. Some of the 4,000 characters representing all the alphabets in the world which decorate the walls of the new Bibliotheca Alexandrina are inscribed on the barrel of the Sophia Limited Edition.
    The cap and barrel, made of sterling silver or yellow gold in the case of the more precious versions are decorated using the exclusive technique of burin engraving, with applications of yellow gold and pink gold (or pink gold and white gold in the case of the yellow gold version) which add relief and magnificence to the details.
    Sophia Limited Edition is available in sterling silver fountain pen (1200 pieces as the length in km of the Valley of the Nile), sterling silver rollerball pen (331 pieces in memory of the year when the Library of Alexandria was founded: 331 b.C.), 18K yellow gold fountain pen (58 pieces as the number of individuals depicted in Raphael's fresco "The School of Athens") and 18K yellow gold fountain pen with diamonds (11 pieces as the number of floors in the new Bibliotheca Alexandrina).

Montegrappa manufacture since 1912 stands in the same historic building on the bank of the River Brenta, in one of the most picturesque areas of the historic town of Bassano del Grappa in the prosperous north-eastern part of Italy. This Italian heritage is an important value for a Brand that is the first Italian pen manufacturer: it is his tradition, his legacy. Since 1912 Montegrappa pens embody the Italian flair. Founded as a "Manufacturer of gold nibs and fountain pens", the Bassano factory found itself in a key position during World War I. Among the many soldiers who used Montegrappa pens (then known as Elmo) to write letters home, there were also two celebrated American writers, Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos, who were both volunteer ambulance drivers at the front. Montegrappa's pens are reserved for those who can't live without the emotions inspired by the feel of a crafted writing instrument between their fingers, responding to their delicate movements. As they guide the Montegrappa pen across the paper, the eye follows the ink as it seeps in. Whether it be the colors reminiscent of the master painters or the ornaments of Baroque palaces, it is all part of Montegrappa's Italian heritage. In the land known for drama and love, where writers especially have come to get a taste of romance, no object is too small or too practical not to strive for beauty. As well as its limited editions, freely inspired by great moments of history and the most ancient passions of mankind, Montegrappa produces a regular range, for who want to indulge in a daily luxury. Acquired in 2000 by one of the great world leaders in the field of luxury goods, Montegrappa today, in its regular range as well as its limited editions, still preserves its characteristic craftsmanship of the highest level, creating exclusive pens which, letter by letter, express the succession of emotions over time through the thread of writing.
