Michelangelo is probably the first pen realized with 36 faces that makes it looks like more as a diamond than to a writing object: the value of a diamond, after the weighing in carats, is in fact due to the quality cut and the number of faces.
The central band has a decorative design of a double Greek key, composed by the V of extraordinary elegance of the Visconti brand.

Matching the Michelangelo, with the same finishing, two new desk inkpots:
Also Michelangelo pens can be personalized with initials on the cap top, with magnetic initials of Visconti's My Pen System.

The special box is decorated with a special illustration, made by the painter Mazzi.
