Montegrappa Fortuna Tricolore pen – a tribute to Italy
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 virtus, or strength of character, including wisdom, valour and courage. At Montegrappa, they believe that luck is indubitably linked to virtue.
‘Italian-ness’ is an innate quality of all Montegrappa pens, but the Fortuna Tricolore pen collection takes this concept a stage further. Striped from top to end in the green-white-red of Italy’s flag, it is indeed an emblematic writing instrument of Italian pride.
And it seemed apparently so to Mr. Matteo Renzi too. Italy’s Prime Minister held tightly in hand the Fortuna Tricolore pen throughout his last meeting and press conference in Berlin with the Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, Mrs. Angela Merkel, held Friday–January 29th, 2016.
Since 1912, Montegrappa has been manufacturing high-quality writing instruments in the same historic building in Bassano del Grappa, North East Italy.
