On October 20, 1916, the ‘first and most important Italian manufacturer of fountain pens’ (as recorded on the certificate of registration) was established in Florence. It was called “Tibaldi & Co.” Since that time and throughout the 20th century, people from all walks of life, be they great writers or everyday people wishing to write down their thoughts, have savored Tibaldi’s elegant, reliable pens.
The Tibaldi pens are at once bejeweled accessories and works of technological innovation. But at heart they are writing instruments. They are designed for unerring comfort and endurance. And just like Tibaldi’s early 20th century pens, it is easy to imagine them on the desk of some of the world’s most influential writers, many of whom were born in the country where Tibaldi pens were conceived.
