The precious elegance of a Montegrappa pen

Elegance is something more than the natural predisposition to express and love beauty and kindness, it consists in the art of knowing which words to discard and which to keep. In a digital world that falls every moment and leaves no time for words, too often replaced by emoticons, the privilege of savoring the scent of paper and slowing down time, writing on it with a pen, is an operation that reconnects soul to mind and allows us to regain possession of the height, duration, intensity and timbre of our ideas. Like a musical instrument, the pen reveals its potential in the hands of those who use it and gives the luxury of living a more intimate and personal dimension with our thoughts, finally free to echo through the pages with melodious harmony. For 110 years, the Montegrappa company has been looking for the perfect balance between technology and art in elegance to create writing instruments that can inspire writers, professionals, men determined to leave their mark and make the most satisfying choices.

Few editions can compete with the beauty and meaning, not only symbolic, of this pen. The craftsmanship of Dante Alighieri: Paradiso is the same that, since the triumphal launch of the Dragon pen (1995), has become a hallmark of Montegrappa.
