The founding Visconti family have been involved in the art of fine writing instruments for many years. Visconti was established in 1988. They quickly grew in size and profile, producing pens made from celluloid - a natural material absent for many years from the pen market. They have also been notably innovative, creating new fountain pen filler systems as well as other products, such as the travel inkwell. As a result of their innovation, Visconti now have many patents to their name.
Visconti have concentrated not only on the functionality, but also the aesthetics of the writing instruments they produce. They have one of the widest and most interesting collections on the market today. All Visconti writing instruments are produced in Firenze, Italy.
