Visconti is thrilled to announce the launch of the new Opera Demo 'Carousel' collection. The iconic design of the Opera Collection is enhanced by inspiration from the extravagant parties that took place at the Palace of Versailles. This world of sophistication and luxury made history for its embellished parties, colorful dresses, and theatrical hairstyles.

A carousel of colors: pink, green, blue, and red transport us to an eccentric palace party where high spirits and extravagance take center stage. This new collection stands out for its beautiful transparencies and bright colors that highlight the 'squaring of the circle' design of the iconic Visconti Opera. Patented in 2004, the squaring the circle design was inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci's 'Vitruvian Man' and is often admired as the perfect ergonomic shape for a writing instrument.

As always, Visconti excels at creating uniquely swirled resins, this time in 4 striking colors. Each Opera Demo color variant is a blend of three types of semi-transparent acrylic resin. The combination of these materials gives the pen its brightness and unique detailing. All metal fitting are finished in palladium and polished by hand.

The fountain pen comes equipped with Visconti's new in-house 14kt gold nib. It also features a new style piston rod, crafted from a very durable Acrylic Resin. The new rod is translucent and does not disrupt the view of ink in the new Opera Demo body when filled.

The fountain pen fills using Visconti's patented double reservoir power filler and features a second ink window round the ring of the pen behind the nib. The Double Reservoir Power Filler is a vacuum filling system that was patented in 1998 and is a unique filling system that allows a massive ink capacity and safe usage during air flights. Similar in operation to vacuum-filling pens, it fills with a massive ink capacity in the sealed ink reservoir. Unique to this design, there is a second reservoir in between the vacuum seal and the pen’s feed that holds a smaller amount of ink, about the size of a typical standard international short cartridge. Effectively, what you end up with here is the ink equivalent of a standard international cartridge that you can use to write (without having to unscrew the filler knob like you do with most other vacuum-fillers), with the contents of an entire pack of cartridges (or the entire Visconti Traveling Inkwell!) in the back of your pen.

The fountain pen also features Visconti's patented hook-safe lock closure. This revolutionary closing system is very satisfying to operate and was created to lock the pen body into the cap to prevent the possibility of the pen accidentally unscrewing and leaking inside a pocket or bag.

We do our best to photograph the pens to show how they will appear in person, but due to the nature of the material there will be some variation in the pattern seen here. This adds an element of uniqueness to the pen, with no two patterns being exactly the same.
