Among the most successful pen families Montegrappa has issued, Fortuna has struck a chord with a young, urban clientele that appreciates its combination of modernity and classicism. The family of pens was named after, the Goddess of Fortune, the personification of luck according to the ancient Romans.
Fortuna’s identity as the embodiment of chance events was closely tied to ‘virtus’, or strength of character. Montegrappa strongly believes that good fortune is indubitably linked to virtue, while education is the foundation onto which an individual develops and nurtures his or her innate talents. They also believe that hand-writing is an essential element of the education process and an indispensable function, even in today’s hurried, digitized society.
For this reason, Montegrappa has created the original Fortuna collection, with an eye to those who still indulge in the pleasure of writing. It is their wish that these pens will engender the good luck that is deserved. Fortuna is available as a fountain pen (cartridge/converter fed), roller ball, twist-action ballpoint pen and mechanical pencil.
For the coming season, Fortuna is offered in the three vivacious hues of multifaceted mosaic resin called Roma, Barcelona and Marrakech, further enriched with a stainless steel trim. With the modern silhouette and the respective black & white, turquoise or indigo blue shades of colours, typical for the mosaic art of each of these cities, the effect is never less than bold. The fountain pen’s stainless steel nib is available in one of three widths, to suit the user’s writing preferences.
