Opera Gold is a collection that draws inspiration from the history of lyric opera. It is a tribute to those masters such as Verdi, Puccini, Mozart and Rossini, whose works of storytelling and musical genius still resonate today with audiences around the world thanks to their composers’ flair, brilliance and imagination. An Opera Gold pen is an invitation to recall that greatness always has to begin with someone somewhere.
Opera Gold is now available in blue, red and black with gold powder marbling. Gold plated trim completes the elegant design of this classic pen with this year’s novelty of a large yellow gold plated stainless steel nib.
The name of the collection is shown on the front of the ring to enhance the link between Visconti and the city of Florence. The design on the remaining sides of the ring, a typical Florentine decoration with four lobes, is inspired by the bronze tiles by Brunelleschi and Ghiberti on the north door of the Baptistery of Santa Maria del Fiore, with the addition of the Visconti “V” from the logo.
The Visconti Mirage fountain pen is made of injected resin (where many other pens in the type of resin are machine turned bars).The fountain pens are equipped with a steel nib available in widths Fine, Medium or Broad en are supplied in a gift case.
