Pens against Parkinson’s
Tulip for Team Fox is richly coloured, with a pocket-clip modelled on the global symbol of Parkinson’s awareness. Its floral design comes from the hand of painter/sculptor, Timothy John – a long-time Montegrappa ambassador, collaborator and friend. In 2017, Timothy was himself diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, and his engagement and enthusiasm have been the driving force behind this special project.
Beautiful expression is something all aficionados of fine writing hold dear. But for an estimated five million people living with Parkinson’s Disease, formulating even the simplest thoughts can be an arduous, painful ritual. This Solidarity Edition helps fund research for a cure. It’s built to go wherever you go, with a sculpted tulip pocket clip to pronounce love and compassion as your guides.

BY TIMOTHY JOHN. FOR PARKINSON’S RESEARCH
The global symbol of Parkinson’s awareness is the centrepiece of a design championed and created by fine artist, Timothy John. Recently diagnosed with the debilitating disease, Timothy inspired us to seek out the collaboration of an organisation that Bloomberg cited as “the fulcrum on which Parkinson’s research pivots.” Proceeds from every purchase will help fund the Michael J. Fox Foundation and its efforts to accelerate the search for a cure.
As a Montegrappa Solidarity Edition design, 10% of proceeds from all purchases of the Tulip for Team Fox will flow to The Michael J. Fox Foundation. The Foundation has funded more than $800 million in research to accelerate new and improved treatments, and accelerate a cure. The Foundation’s signature orange livery provides the colour reference for the pen’s barrel, section and a Montegrappa insignia set into a cap of tulip red.
