LEONARDO DA VINCI Limited Edition from Montegrappa
Nearly half a millennium after his death, the world remains entranced by the brilliance of the great Italian maestro. Our newest limited edition hails the universal genius of Leonardo da Vinci.
As museums around the world prepare to mark 500 years since the loss of one of history’s most prolific minds, we proudly welcome Leonardo da Vinci as the newest subject of our Genio Creativo collector series.
For the design of this limited-edition release, we have chosen to salute Leonardo’s engineering genius. Widely celebrated for his artistic supremacy, his virtuosity across scientific fields continues to mesmerise scholars. Even today, new technologies are enabling engineers to prove many of his most fanciful concepts .
From machines of war to telescopes, musical instruments and early robotics, Leonardo’s ambition and talent knew no boundaries. Left-handed, he was also an enigmatic writer, annotating his drawings with mirror script written right to left. The new Leonardo da Vinci edition writes conventionally, but celebrates the maestro’s technological prowess throughout its design and presentation.
Hand-finished in brass, stainless steel and Tuscan olive wood, the edition’s 500 piston-fed fountain pens and 500 rollerballs fuse meticulous metal detailing with organic materials – evoking Leonardo’s sense for the fluid relationship between nature, art and science. References to his achievements in geometry, astronomy, engineering and architecture feature throughout the piece.
An elegant mechanical object made for the purpose of creative expression. We suspect Leonardo himself might have approved!

What to say. Leonardo Da Vinci still inspires artists and engineers, thinkers around the globe, and to give him tribute this pen is truly brilliant. The design, looks, feel all reminds us the great man he was.
From Montegrappa an Italian company to the greatest Italian Leonardo! The original form of English writing as we today was designed by the Romans and perfected by them. They taught the British ABCD’s for over 500 years. Leonardo lives in our hearts even after 500 years through his various works. All of us know that classy design & style means Italy, whether it is Bathrooms, Clothing, Cars, Furniture or Lettering . What a way to commemorate one the of the greatest Maestros in the history of mankind, he will continue to live eternally. I am falling short of words for appreciation of this Stunning GENIO CREATIVO!
This pen is a work of art. It is something pen lovers will live to have in their arsenal.
Italian company gives tribute to the all time Italian legend in vinci. Nice design and obviously very costly.
