Since 1912, Montegrappa has been manufacturing writing implements in Italy in the same historic building on the bank of the River Brenta. In fact, “Italian-ness” is at the heart of Montegrappa tradition.

Montegrappa pens have played their part in history, for signing documents during key moments in world politics.

Montegrappa has produced a continuing flow of limited editions to commemorate events, locales and individuals. Highly desirable pens such as the coveted Dragon have in turn attracted and inspired notable collectors. In 2010, France’s President, Nicolas Sarkozy, join the distinguished gathering of heads-of-state, royalty, actors, musicians, artists, sportsmen, top models, writers and celebrities who have been proud owners of Montegrappa pens during its first century.

Visit Place Vendôme to see—and feel—perfect writing instruments by Montegrappa.  Special orders are always welcome.
