Signatures of Style
Montegrappa pens are trophies that signal a joy for writing, style and the finer things in life. Made with Italian craftsmanship and verve, our writing instruments express elegance, excellence and individual style. Refined engineering and virtuoso finishing underscore the exclusivity of charismatic design. For more than a century, Montegrappa fountain pens have consistently balanced tradition and innovation. Since 1912, our constant quest for perfection has been fuelled by Venetian ambition, courage and pride. Exclusive, high quality materials are hand-selected to tantalise collectors, and ensure lasting performance.
Montegrappa pens have brought pleasure to a long line of exceptional characters over the years. Beginning with the young Ernest Hemingway – a wartime guest at our Cà Erizzo estate – the hands of illustrious figures from the worlds of literature, politics, industry and entertainment have held a Montegrappa. Our catalogue celebrates individualist spirit. Here, variety is never in short supply. Fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints in a wide range of colours and shapes are only the tip of the iceberg. Alongside hallmark writing silhouettes, regular limited product releases use artistic vision, artisanal flair and lavish detailing to appeal to connoisseur and collector sensibilities. Every pen serves a purpose: whether it be a daily writing companion, a tool for creating calligraphy, or a signifier of success. Regardless of use, a fine writing instrument should provide inspiration and empowerment. For this reason, our pens are meticulously constructed at every step – with precious materials, sophisticated mechanisms and obsessive attention to detail. To hold a Montegrappa fountain pen is to hold a piece of lasting Italian style. Beauty, elegance and craftsmanship are qualities that transcend generational and cultural barriers. As objects of exceptional form and function, our fountain pens invoke fascination and admiration, while offering unrivalled writing pleasure.
An online platform offering full customisation is the latest innovation in the long history of Montegrappa pens.

Values of high craftsmanship, precision finishing and elegant style also extend to a collection of Montegrappa cufflinks. Designed to add punctuation to elegant dressing, they signal a man’s attentiveness to detail. Bold designs feature refined fusions of metallic and exotic finishes. Montegrappa fragrances are inspired by the ambience and mood of Bassano del Grappa, the home of Italy’s first fountain pen factory. Blended by Italy’s finest perfumers, scents for him and her excite the senses with olfactory notes invoking allegria and free spirit.
