Fortuna was the Goddess of Fortune, the personification of luck according to the ancient Romans. Fortuna's identity as the embodiment of chance events was closely tied to virtues, or strength of character. Public officials who lacked this quality invited ill-fortune on both themselves and Rome.
Montegrappa's Fortuna collection is available as a fountain pen (cartridge/converter fed), roller ball, twist-action ballpoint pen and mechanical pencil.
