boxWhen Giardino Italiano turned 20 (20 years of online sales), Visconti made a special pen for us; a Limited Edition in 100 pieces to celebrate the anniversary, the first one in the world for pens’ webshops.
Also because our very first pen sold online was actually a Visconti, therefore it was an obvious choice.
In these monts, everybody liked it, and it has been a best-seller, for a series of reason – in my opinion – that I’m trying to list here below.

LeonardoPenneLogoSome new pens have hit the market. It’s the Momento Zero series (the Italian for “Zero Moment”). They display a beautifully classical look, with their informal and natural style. The colors of their resins and celluloid are sober, yet iridescent. Their name calls for rebirth, commitment, and enthusiasm.

The brand is Leonardo Officina Italiana, a novice in the pen-making field. This start-up was founded by brother and sister Salvatore and Mariafrancesca Matrone, whose names should ring a bell to pen lovers. 

I interviewed them to discover a little bit more about their new enterprise.

Dante Del VecchioI interviewed Dante Del Vecchio one and a half years after leaving Visconti. Founder and CEO of Visconti up to 2016, Dante del Vecchio is the creator of all the Visconti pens, inventor of all its patents and author of its successes.

Instead of greeting a golden retirement, as many people would do at his age, Dante put himself on the line, starting from scratch and building for Pineider some pen collections that are highly successful.

The great feature of all Visconti pens was the compatibility standard: a small size nib was perfectly exchangeable in all the pens that mounted a small nib, both steel or palladium. They had the same feeder, the same grip section, the same shape and size of the nib.

Earlier this year, Giardino Italiano issued a very special pen to celebrate its 20th anniversary: Garden of Eden. This pen was exclusively designed and produced by Italian penmaker Visconti for Giardino Italiano. Its style, character and significance are unique, and as rare as the scrimshaw technique used to decorate each and every piece of this limited series.

Some months later, we asked our customers what they thought about the Garden of Eden in an online poll. We were so amazed by their responses that we thought to share their feedback and thoughts in our blog as one of our best advertisements ever.
