Visconti conceived the Homo Sapiens writing instruments line for real writers, for those to whom the fountain pen continues to represent a travelling mate, a daily friend to share with the same civilization that writing contributed to create.

The material in this pen is as antique and natural as the world: lava from the Etna volcano. in south Italy. Nevertheless, it has several characteristics that render it unique in the manufacturing of writing instruments.

Visconti has successfully produced a material containing pure basaltic lava, catalysed together with resin in a formula – patented thus obviously kept secret -whose extraordinary characteristics practically transforms it into a material perfectly fit to writing instruments.

Inspiration for all metallic trims was drawn from the Bronze Age, almost contemporary to the invention of writing.

Visconti lava compound is:
• Virtually unbreakable, with a high degree of resilience.
• Flameproof, with a resistance to heat of over 100°C.
• Slightly hygroscopic, allowing to absorb hand sweat during use.
• Dense at touch, allowing the best finger-relaxing grip or touch.
• Unquestionably new, as materials employed in watch cases.
The Lava material is a natural material; when daily used, the pen keeps its original dark grey color.

If the pen is not used for a while or exposed to strong light it can become light grey.

To regenerate the material, it is simple: just treat the pen with a common moisturizer
