Antonio Canova (1757 - 1822), famous Italian sculptor, was the greatest of neoclassical artists for marble sculpture.
He had illustrious customers, from the Hapsburgs to the Bourbons, from papal court to Napoleon, to Venetian, Roman and Russian nobles.

Among his most notable works, we mention The Three Graces, Pauline Bonaparte and Psyche revived by Cupid.

Canova statue

The Canova pen is a piece of the "Genio Creativo" series. Montegrappa produces only 260 fountain pens and 260 rollerballs, the same number of years since the scuptor's birth to nowadays.

The pens' barrel is made of a special marble composite, depicting The Three Graces sculpture, slightly grey. According to the legend, Canova used to pass over the white stone with a cloth soaked with the water used to wash his tools; the stone absorbed the dirt and acquired a more natural look.

Montegrappa Canova
The cap (with Canova's signature), the grip and the end are made with polished black resin; and trims are in polished bronze.

The peculiar clip seems a pleated drape, which the artist used to clad his works with.
The central band is enriched with small decorative motifs that were often found in antique amphorae.
