Barbiere di Siviglia Yellow Gold Stones Fountain Pen ISBENG1

Email to a Friend


The Montegrappa Barbiere di Siviglia Silver Rollerball Pen is a tribute to the renowned and loved Barber of Seville opera. Crafted in precious metal with a blue celluloid cap and barrel, the pen reflects the story: Count Almaviva enlists Figaro the barber to help woo Rosina, the secret passion of her lecherous guardian Don Bartolo. The barrel is decorated with a view of late 18th Century Seville, represented by the city’s Giralda bell tower and the Golden Tower. Decorating the cap are scenes from the opera, with Figaro, guitar in hand appearing beneath the balcony of Don Bartolo’s house, singing the most famous aria of the opera, “Largo al Factotum”. The cap top on the Gold fountain pen is embellished with a white gold azulejo, the distinctive Andalusian tile that still decorates the most famous buildings in Seville, while musical notes adorn the clip.


For the gold edition, a sophisticated hot enameling technique faithfully reproduces the stunning shades of blue of the tiny tile.  

To represent the starry night sky of the opera’s first act, Montegrappa employed fine blue celluloid, with mother-of-pearl and glitter highlights. The yellow gold nib, with white gold decorations on the gold and gem-set versions, is engraved with a grated window of Don Bartolo’s house, from which Rosina listens to Count Almaviva’s heartfelt serenade.


Each pen in the “Invito a Il Barbiere di Siviglia” Limited Edition comes in a gift box that evokes shapes, colors and scenes from the opera: the white of Seville’s old buildings, the famous colonnade of the Alcazar courtyard and the azulejo tile on the top of the gift box.
