Montegrappa La Canzone Del Grappa Fountain Pen


This fine pen commemorates the poignant hymn about the First World War, ‘Monte Grappa Tu Sei La Mia Patria,’ an anthem intrinsic to Italian heritage. Beyond being a writing tool, this pen honors the bravery, solemnity, and irrepressible spirit of the Monte Grappa region a century after the song was first performed. The translucent body provides a view of the piston-filling system, accented by a resin cap and hood that resemble vintage marble.
