The Ponte Vecchio is as much a symbol of Florence as Michelangelo's David or the dome of the Duome. The Ponte Vecchio bridge was built in 1345 and has undergone only minor change in 650 years. In the 1500's the rows of small houses on each side of the bridgebecame home to over 40 goldsmiths practicing traditional Florentine skills in which many of the finest renaissance artisans had been trained. To this day, the Crafts of the world renown artisans are still available o the Ponte Vecchio.
With the Ponte Vecchio writing collection, Visconti is featuring magnificient celluloid colours highlighted by a different finish to celebrate the achievements of the Ponte Vecchio craftsmen - a Matte Gold Finish on the Adriatic Stone. The band, clip and nib are engraved to honour Benvenuto Cellini, the most revered Florentine goldsmith whose statue stand at the center of the bridge.
