Visconti is delighted to announce the launch of the new il Magnifico Black Marble, the fourth edition from the iconic il Magnifico series. Inspired by one of the most renowned figures of the Florentine Renaissance, Lorenzo 'Il Magnifico' de' Medici, the Visconti il Magnifico collection personifies the essence of the Renaissance period, combining luxurious and precious materials. For this latest launch, genuine Portoro marble is complemented by an aged bronze cap and trims.

Lorenzo de' Medici was an Italian Statesman and a 15th century Ruler of the Florentine Republic. Considered as one of the most powerful and enthusiastic patrons of the Renaissance age, he was commonly known as Lorenzo "il Magnifico" (the Magnificent) by his contemporary Florentines as he was an influential businessman, diplomat, politician and a patron of scholars.

The pen celebrates Lorenzo de' Medici's great passion for art and noble black marble. The pen's body is made of Portoro marble, a kind of marble only found in Italy in the province of La Spezia. Portoro marble is know for its golden streaks that range from deep yellow to honey and is considered the most precious of black marbles. The intense black color is a gorgeous contrast to its striking golden veins. The marble body is octagonal shaped and inspired by the Baptistery of Florence, formed using specific, high-precision machinery. Visconti's semi-precious stone expert craftsmen manually polish each of the pen's components before assembling them. Due to the nature of the material, each pen will vary with different patterns of the golden streaks throughout the pen. We are unable to accommodate specific requests. 

Lilies, the symbol of the city of Florence, are meticulously engraved on the aged bronze parts by Visconti's expert Florentine craftsmen. The iconic Ponte Vecchio clip is plated in rose gold and embellished with a black enamel reminiscent of the Portoro marble accenting the body of the pen expertly. The top of the cap is enriched with the ancient coat of arms of the Medici family.

The il Magnifico Black Marble fountain pen features Visconti's power filling system, the Hook Safe Lock cap closure system, an oversized 18kt rose gold nib made in-house, and is limited to 188 pieces worldwide.
