Details

It is thus both fitting and timely that Montegrappa, which has been producing superior fountain pens and writing instruments in the same factory since 1912, has been chosen to produce the centenary pen for the Milanese automobile manufacturer Alfa Romeo, born in 1910. The two brands have exemplified Italian creativity through their first centuries with unrelenting commitment to their core values. Their consistent pursuit of excellence  with panache  have ensured their places in the hearts of connoisseurs.

Italian qualities unite the two companies, which share the values that define Italian spirit, tradition and innovation. Blessed with the almost transcendent ability to marry unfailingly form and function, Montegrappa and Alfa Romeo have always insisted that their creations possess a gracefulness that complements the application. Have there ever been any other sports cars as beautifully proportioned as the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 or the 8C So, too, do Montegrappa pens exhibit the Italianate blending of the practical and the aesthetic.

The first fruits of this new partnership is an elegant set of pens that embody the essence of Alfa Romeos history and prestige, expressed by book-ending the century through the use of evocative materials. The series created by the Bassano master craftsmen for this important anniversary comprises twelve different pens (three versions of fountain, ballpoint and rollerball pens and mechanical pencils) to celebrate and honour the glorious car maker in each and every design detail.

On the first model, traditional celluloid is used for the cap and a technologically advanced material such as carbon fibre is used for the body. The choices represent ideal bridges between the past and present, to acknowledge the dynamics of the prestigious automobile company, which remains faithful to its historical roots while striving towards the future, demonstrated with meticulous care and attention to technological and stylistic innovation and research.

Etched in Low-Relief on the body of the silver and gold versions in the Montegrappa collection are exquisite artistic designs inspired by the stylistic elements on the evocative Alfa Romeo logo: the Visconti snake, badge and vintage logo. The brand logo also appears in relief on the top of the cap, while the classic Alfa four leaf clover is etched on the 18K two-tone gold nib of the fountain pen, which is partially rhodium plated. The nib feeder is made from ebonite, proving that even the parts hidden from the eye are selected and crafted with the utmost attention to detail.

Even the packaging confirms the elegance and sophistication of these unique writing instruments, which possess a deliciously refined, distinctive design. Each pen comes with its own exclusive eco-leather case, with a pen pouch and an international guarantee certifying the research, passion and pure brilliance of the craftsmen who have produced this commemorative line for Alfa Romeo.
