Inspiration for Visconti's Michelangelo collection came from the classical era of Hellenistic arts, and the artistic ripples that followed in the Hellenistic era's lines.
The Michelangelo has an elegant, slim design. The barrel and cap of the pen have a uniquely cut 18-sided shape that tapers off at the extremities of the pen. A finely decorated ring sits at the lower part of the cap. The ballpoint pen is equipped with a twist action mechanism, white the cap carries Visconti's double spring clip.
The Venus edition is dedicated to perhaps the most celebrated painting of Botticel, The Birth of Venus, and combines a precious resin in tones of pink with rose gold coated metallic parts.
