Visconti presents a brand new collection with a "divine" look: Apollo, Zeus and Aphrodite are the protagonists of Mirage Mythos.
Greek mythology teaches that the Olympian gods are immortal beings, governing the life and death of human beings. The three personalities Visconti selected represent three different supernatural forces for them to be inspired by.
Apollo is the god of the arts, music, poetry and science. He is the son of Zeus and the symbols that identify him are, among others, the Sun, the lyre, the bow and arrow.
Zeus is King of the gods and ruler of Mount Olympus, god of the sky, lightning and atmospheric phenomena. The thunderbolt is his symbol for excellence.
Aphrodite is the goddess of love and beauty. Daughter of Zeus, her most recognisable symbols are the dove and the sparrow.
Three brand new colours shaded with gold powder, each corresponding to a divinity: we chose brown for Apollo, blue for Zeus and purple for Aphrodite. This is a new Mirage, with innovations that distinguish it at first glance from the basic model, such as the large steel nib (yellow gold plated), the central section made of brass instead of resin, but above all the central ring, on which is engraved the inscription MYTHOS and the V, similar to a stylised Mount Olympus
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.
