Visconti fountain pens: the essential gift for every writer
Those who love to write often possess a sensitive personality that is attentive to stimuli from the outside world. It is a known fact that professional writers usually draw inspiration from observing nature and various art forms, such as sculpture, painting, or music, to stimulate their creativity and ingenuity.

The collection’s nine variants combined with the three special editions dedicated to a Van Gogh masterpiece will amaze those who love to write.

Moreover, thanks to its eye-catching and colorful aesthetics, this collection is perfect for gifting to younger writers approaching these instruments for the first time.
The timeless elegance of the Homo Sapiens Dual Touch is the perfect gift idea for those who enjoy innovation while remaining anchored in the great classics. Indeed, the writing experience with this pen is new and surprising thanks to the clever combination of two materials seemingly distant from each other but that, once united, offer unique tactile sensations.

The Homo Sapiens Dual Touch fountain pen is available in camouflage, cognac, and black versions that perfectly match the accessories of the VSCT leather line.
The inkwell: the right gift for every occasion
Once you’ve identified the perfect Visconti fountain pen model to give as a gift, it is time to consider a must-have accessory on every writing lover’s desk, namely the Visconti signature glass inkwell. This gift idea for writers brings back the magic of the ancient ritual of dipping the nib directly into the ink, a gesture of timeless elegance that accompanies the intimate and reflective moment of the writing process. The innovative design of the glass inkwell bottle combines aesthetics and practicality, thanks to the convenient inner cylinder designed to collect only the correct amount of ink needed to refill the pen, thus avoiding waste. The cap, in the same color as the ink, covers the Bakelite cap that protects against air and temperature variations. For lovers of tradition, choose the classic blue and black color variants, and for the more exuberant writers and letterers, pick brighter shades such as red, sepia, green, or turquoise ink to give a touch of color to their notes and texts.
In addition to devising writing instruments with timeless appeal, Visconti also focuses on the needs of an ever-changing world in which dynamism is the order of the day. Indeed, people who love writing by hand but are always on the move for work or pleasure need an elegant and functional instrument that keeps their fountain pen filled and ready for use. This is why the Florentine brand developed the travel inkwell, which allows you to refill the reservoir of any writing instrument with a piston filling system. This gift idea will allow any writer who spends a lot of time away from home or in the office to never run out of ink and to refill their favorite fountain pen in an easy, clean, and safe way.
