To celebrate the great Mexican tradition of the Charreria, Visconti has created a masterpiece, embellished by the work of artist Claudio Mazzi.
It is not enough for a man to be able to ride; he must be able to fall.
Inspired by the Spanish tradition of the 16th century, the Charreria is a competitive event developed from the animal husbandry practices used in the haciendas of old Mexico. The sport is similar to a rodeo and is considered a “living history” and an art form drawn from the demands of working life. The modern charreada consists of nine events for men plus one for women, all of which involve horses, cattle or both.
The cap is wrapped with a deep embossed leather to recall the saddle and boots of the charros. The barrel of the pen depicts a scene from the Charreria, painted by maestro Claudio Mazzi with the permission of Mexican artist Emilio García. Master Mazzi is a professional artist and paints his masterpieces using an airbrush. The quality of his work is so high that the painting looks like a photo stched into the pen: the painting is so incredibly detailed that it takes up to one day of work to paint one single pen.
