A brand-new silhouette with a big future is on the horizon. The first model to be designated under our new Vintage Class is Brenta – already available to ship to markets.
As visitors to Bassano del Grappa know, Brenta is also the name of the river that flows beneath the landmark Ponte Vecchio bridge and past our historic headquarters. The 174km stretch of water that connects Trento, Bassano, Padua and Venice to the Adriatic Sea has a history intertwined with Venetian trade and aristocracy, and its elegant, gentle flow is evoked in the seductive soft facets of our new silhouette.
Our design takes inspiration from a rare 1930s Extra model housed in our museum. Brenta’s most distinctive feature is its all-over wave-formation relief – an effect that demonstrates the high technical sophistication of our pre-war factory. Indeed, this glistening briolette shaping would be barely possible today without the aid of advanced CNC machining.
Brenta is carved from resin and uses thinline stainless steel – most visibly on a cigar-style, triple-bar cap-band. It features our classical contour clip with ruzzolino clamp, and is supplied in fountain pen, rollerball and ballpoint modes.
Fountain pens are cartridge/converter-fed, and are available in three 6mm nib qualities: stainless-steel filigree (EF, F, M, B, Stub 1.1, Stub 1.5), 14K gold filigree (EF, F, M, B, Stub 1.1), and 14K gold flex filigree (EF, F). Brenta is delivered in a new Vintage Class paperboard case.
