The universal genius of Leonardo da Vinci joins our homage to history’s greatest minds. Five hundred years after his passing, his vision continues to dumbfound modern art and science scholars. Whether depicting divine beauty or devising machines of war, nature’s intricate designs were Leonardo’s constant muse. Engineering, mathematics and sublime creativity converge in a fusion of olive wood and meticulous metalcraft.
Half a millennium after the loss of one of the world’s most prodigious creative talents, 500 fountain pens and 500 rollerballs mark the ascension of Leonardo da Vinci into Montegrappa’s Genio Creativo series. Leonardo’s inventiveness extended even to his handwriting, which he was known to execute right-to-left in mirror script. The natural simplicity and intellectual complexity of his craft are embodied by contrasting materials, intricate geometry and rich detail. A magic cube-inspired case and scale model replica of Leonardo’s fighting vehicle bring added intrigue and desk presence to the equation.
