Il Magnifico Black Marble Collection
The Il Magnifico Black Marble collection is the fourth edition inspired by Lorenzo de Medici, an emblematic figure of the Florentine Renaissance. This pen is a celebration of his great passion for art and the noble black marble.
“The reward, or the punishment, of a versatile and intelligent nature is to be regarded as a mystery.”
Edward Amstrong on Lorenzo the Magnificent
A FUNCTIONAL WORK OF ART
In this collection, the pen’s bodies are made of Portoro marble, a kind found only in Italy, in the province of La Spezia.
This limited edition pen possesses all the features that have made the Il Magnifico series famous. The use of marble elevates this writing instrument into a work of art.
A PATRON OF THE ARTS
Lorenzo de’ Medici was a great connoisseur of marble and often visited quarries to personally assess which pieces he wanted. His love of the arts, and particularly sculpture, meant he became a patron of many artists of the time. Michelangelo, who was treated almost as a son by Il Magnifico, was one of these artists. The ruler of Florence even founded the first European art academy in his San Marco gardens.
