    Galileo GalileiGalileo Galilei (1564-1642) was an Italian physicist, astronomer, philosopher, mathematician and writer, considered the father of modern science.
    He introduced the experimental method into scientific investigation, improved the optical technique of telescopes and discovered numerous celestial objects, including the four largest moons of Jupiter, which he named after the Medici family of Florence.
    He was accused of heresy, condemned by the Inquisition and forced to abjure his astronomical conceptions.
    He was officially rehabilitated by the Church only in 1992.

    The pen Galileo Galilei

    Cap and body made of antiqued vermeil (gold plated sterling silver) and transparent resin, and a new patented filling system.

    Visconti Galileo Galilei

    The transparent resin appears in the section and in the cap, providing a view of the reservoir and of the 18kt white gold nib when the pen is closed.
    The decorative elements of the pen recall the Baroque craftsmanship of Galileo's time. In particular, thanks to the variety of materials used, antiqued vermeil and polished palladium, a subtle chiaroscuro effect is achieved.

    The fine engravings of the demo moon phases and Florentine lilies further enhance this stunning design.

    Visconti Galileo Galilei - box

    The pen is packed in a dark wood box, that holds inside the Galileo Desk Set: a unique stand for the pen, resembling a telescope pointing at the heavens.

    Inside, the box is decorated with the astrolabes that Galileo used, with a globe of the Earth orbiting a golden Sun. Open the box to discover the universe at your fingertips. The amazing starry night sky illuminated on the back wall of the box is created by a rechargeable led light strip reflecting off of a series of mirrors.
    This is Visconti's unique homage to Galileo's contributions and innovations in astronomy and optics.

    Nib: 18Kt white gold, available as EF, F, M, B, Stub.

    Filling: new patented Galileo Double Filler, that offers the same capacity as the historic Power Filler Double Reservoir patent, but provides an additional cover around the ink tank, as well as a double closure system, with both screw and hook safe locks.
    This novelty allows a dual functionality: the double stain-proof ink tank, and the hook safe lock opening inspired by the historical Galilean telescopes. All this makes unique the new limited edition dedicated to Galileo Galilei, blending together tradition and innovation.
