The Visconti Divina Dario Argento Limited Edition fountain pen celebrates the career of Dario Argento, an Italian cinematic Maestro. Best known for his works "Deep Red," "Suspiria," and "The Bird with the Crystal Plumage," Argento is known worldwide as the master of thrill. His movies, imbued with mystery and terror, are nothing less than cinematic gems that present reality as deceptive, with unseen depths reaching far below the surface. Through his cinematic works, we can all experience his unique grasp of the fascinating aspect of darkness and the horror of the soul. Argento brought his unique perspective on life and art to the project and in collaboration with Visconti's artisans, created a limited edition pen release that emulates the macabre while remaining perfectly elegant and refined - in true Argento style.
The Visconti Divina Dario Argento Limited Edition fountain pen combines the iconic Divina with shimmery Bordeaux, and black acrylic swirled resin resembling a puddle of blood that fades into darkness. The sterling silver threads are applied by hand one by one along the twisting edges of the pen design, and the pen's cap features a red carnelian stone. Each fountain pen is fitted with Visconti's in-house 18kt ruthenium nib and pull-and-turn piston filling system. The pen is finished with sterling silver & ruthenium-plated trim. The Visconti Divina Dario Argento Limited Edition fountain pen is limited to only 50 pieces.
Each Visconti Divina Dario Argento Limited Edition fountain pen is packaged in a custom, limited edition box dedicated to the collection and reminiscent of Argento's film set. The distinctive box is covered in black velvet and celebrates the great Maestro with his signature in red, once again contrasting with black coordinating with the collection design. The limited edition also includes a lithograph of the original sketch of the pen inside the box, signed and numbered, together with two personalized ink bottles in Bordeaux and black for use with the limited edition fountain pen.
