Dante Alighieri was born in 1265 in Florence and is considered the greatest Italian poet who ever lived. He is also known as the father of the Italian language as we know it. His major work "Comedia", later known as the Divine Comedy (Divina Commedia), is a masterpiece of world literature that explores the afterlife through three realms: Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. Each realm is depicted with vivid imagery and symbolism, reflecting Dante's moral and spiritual vision of life. Inspired by this epic poem, Visconti has created the new Visconti Comedia collection that captures the essence of each realm in design and craftsmanship.

Each pen features special finishes and colored resin designed to express the imagery of each of Dante's realms. The Inferno is made of solid black resin with fiery red accents and dark ruthenium finishing, evoking the fire and darkness of the Inferno. Purgatorio features palladium trims, while the resin is taupe brown like the purgatory mountain with gray tones representing the purifying journey of souls. Paradiso, on the other hand, is heavenly blue with yellow gold decorations, symbolizing the sacred light and joyful nobility of paradise.

These three different versions of the Comedia are united by the unique design of the central ring, specially created for this collection and covered with two bands with a hammered texture - a detail also found in the distinctive metal part of the pens.

Each central ring is then individually engraved by our craftsmen with the inscription "Comedia" followed by the name of the specific model - Inferno, Purgatorio, or Paradiso. The Visconti Comedia is once again an expression of Visconti's love for the city of Florence, cradle of the Italian Renaissance and embodiment of the craftsmanship that characterizes our creations. The meticulous attention to detail and the love for art and human culture are values that Visconti has always held in high regard and embodies in the development of this collection.

The Visconti Comedia fountain pen features a stainless steel nib and uses a cartridge/converter filling system.

For twenty years, the name Visconti has been synonymous with writing instruments of extraordinary beauty, historically and technologically studied. Visconti's fountain pens, rollers, and ballpoint pens form a wide range of high-quality instruments with a strong identity.
